Made this with diced tomatoes and quinoa. I added cumin (a bit more than 1 tsp.) and used Frank's Buffalo chicken hot sauce. My husband thought it was good as did I. Makes a huge amount of food. It would probably be good without any meat--my sister is vegan so this could be a choice when she comes to dinner without the hot dogs or with tofu substituted.
Cajun Beans and Rice
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 pound turkey hot dogs or other low-fat smoked sausage, cut in 1/2-inch-thick slices
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 6 cups cooked brown or white rice
- 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) Cajun-style stewed tomatoes
- 1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can (15 ounces) navy or great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 1 cup thinly-sliced green onions
- may substitute stewed tomatoes
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add the hot dogs, onion, green pepper and garlic. Cook until the meat is browned and the onions are tender, stirring often, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the rice, tomatoes, kidney beans, navy beans, oregano and hot pepper sauce. Heat through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions, and serve immediately.
