Yield
4 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup bean mixture and about 1/2 cup rice)

With a generous hit of spice and smoke, andouille sausage has long been a favorite ingredient in Cajun recipes. It adds depth of flavor to this simple bean dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook rice according to the package directions, omitting salt and fat.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sausage; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a bowl, and keep warm.

Step 3

Add bell pepper, onion, Cajun seasoning, thyme, and hot pepper sauce to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until onions are tender. Add beans and broth to pan; cook 8 minutes or until thick, mashing half the beans. Add sausage, parsley, and salt to pan; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Serve over rice.

Chef's Notes

While the beans and rice simmer, prepare and bake a corn bread mix for a quick and easy side.
