This is my new favorite quick and easy meal!  I’ve only been to New Orleans once but red beans and rice has always been a favorite of mine.  I usually already have all of the ingredients on hand and it’s a really versatile dish.

You can eat a big bowl of it with a few fun garnishes (like I did!), you can eat it with chips, stuff it into a taco or burrito, put it over nachos, make a taco salad with it, or stuff it into some enchiladas.  Really, the possibilities are endless!
