An iconic blend of onions, bell pepper, celery, garlic and Creole spices, this Fiesta Brand Red Beans and Rice Seasoning will bring the flavors of Louisiana-style cuisine into your kitchen at home.
Perhaps the most emblematic dish of Louisiana Creole cuisine is red beans and rice. Traditionally served on Mondays and made with red beans, vegetables and the pork bones leftover from Sunday night’s dinner, red beans and rice has become a symbol of New Orleans cuisine. Though simple to prepare, red beans and rice is such an iconic dish that you can find it on dinner tables at home as well as in neighborhood restaurants. In some cases, you may find it dressed up with a side order or smoked sausage or a juicy pork chop. To use this seasoning at home, simply combine 1 lbs. soaked red beans with 7 cups of water and 1 package Fiesta Brand Red Beans and Rice Seasoning in a large stockpot. Simmer the beans for 3 hours until tender and mash them into a gravy to serve over steamed rice.
