Easy weeknight Red Beans and Rice

Here is a quick simple yummy red beans and rice recipe. It's that time of year for really good southern comfort food, and this is definitely one of those recipes to add to your weeknight dinner list!

  • 1pound smoked sausage, thinly sliced 
  • 1 medium onion, chopped 
  • 1 medium-size green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
  • 3 (15-ounce) cans red beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (16-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  •  cooked rice
  1. Sauté first 4 ingredients in hot oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add beans and next ingredients.( I skipped the bell peppers, because I didn't have any, and no one noticed)
  2. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Serve over rice, or mix rice in skillet. I served with cornbread!
