Wayne (a.k.a. Hubby) and I created this recipe together. Makes a deliciously filling and frugal dinner, enough to feed the entire family. Thought it was so good we just had to share it with y'all. Hope you like it!


1 T. olive oil
2-3 T. butter
1 large sweet onion, chopped
1 lb smoked beef sausage (or any other desired), cut into 1/4" slices
4-6 c. rice, cooked
2 (15.5 oz) cans Goya black beans, undrained
1 T. Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning
pinch of salt, if desired


In a large skillet heat olive oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add chopped onions and sliced sausage and cook until heated through. Add cooked rice, beans, creole seasoning, and pinch of salt if desired. Cover and simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes.

Makes enough to feed 4 to 6; depending on how hungry everyone is.
