Red Beans and Rice

Jump to recipe

My husband had been requesting this meal for quite a long time and I finally decided to give it a try and make it from scratch. Even when I love Cajun flavors I didn’t have much experience with Red Beans and Rice so after doing some research, I rolled up my sleeves, put on my apron and started working. The smell coming out of my kitchen was incredible. Why did it take me so long to make red beans and rice?! They are so easy to make! I made a big batch…or what I thought was a big batch, because I wanted to freeze the left overs and have them ready for whenever we wanted to eat it again. Well, we ate so much there were not much left overs. I served the red beans and rice with a side of basmati rice and lemons. Do you put lemons in red beans and rice? or Is it a Mexican thing to put limones on everything? My husbands thinks I am crazy but I thing it’s delicious.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
