He's one of those cooks that just kind of throws things together (so not me!), but I asked him to TRY to remember what he put in his dish.
1 lb dried red beans2 quarts water
1 onion, diced (or 1 Tbsp onion powder)
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
½ cup ketchup
1 tsp paprika
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 chicken bouillon cube
Rinse beans, add them to water with onion, garlic powder and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for several hours, until beans are soft. Add additional seasonings and ketchup. Mix together and simmer for an additional 10 minutes. Serve over rice. OR mix with cooked rice for a "dirty rice" type dish.
Have a great weekend!
