Red Beans and Rice (Lazy Style)

I cook a lot of Cajun dishes as my grandparents live in Louisiana. Although I will be the first to admit that my cooking is not nearly as good as my grandmothers, but I try my best to pass along my heritage to my small human. Luckily for me he enjoys the spicy flavored food as much as I.

This weekend I was extra lazy, even cooking via Pizza Hut for one meal. So today we will be having something homemade, but easily fixed as I must needs go shopping for the big Thanksgiving holiday meal.

Enjoy this recipe... It will feed 4 easily.

Red Beans and Rice
*2 tablespoons olive oil
*3 andouille sausage links, chopped
*1 small container prechopped onion, bell pepper, and celery mix
*1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (Chachere's is the brand I use)
*3/4 teaspoon salt
*1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
*2 garlic cloves, minced
*2 cans red beans, rinsed and drained
*1/4 cup water
*1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
*1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
*4 cups hot cooked long-grain rice

Heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage and onion mix to pan. Saute 5 minutes or until onions are translucent and soft. Add Cajun seasoning, salt, oregano, and garlic to pan and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add beans, 1/4 cup water, and tomatoes to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in pepper right before serving. Serve over rice.
