We’re getting down with the comfort today. Last time I looked, it was still February, still cold, and there’s still snow in the forecast, which means comfort is a must ’round here.
Comfort and EASE. Easy Instant Pot recipes – that’s what! I’ve been playing around with several IP recipes lately (as you may know already) and I’m loving throwing in the ingredients, letting it do its thing, and then eating dinner!
So growing up, we used to make a boxed version (yep, another one of those) of Red Beans and Rice. We’d add sausage, let it simmer, and then a quick and easy dinner was ready.
Except you know how I feel about boxed dinners nowadays (and why, when the IP is so easy now?!).
I was craving the spicy, cajun-like flavors in Red Beans and Rice, and missing the bit of nostalgia it brought along, so I knew it had to be made! I haven’t been to New Orleans myself – not yet anyway – but my dad does say he likes this version better than the one’s he’s had in NOLA. WHAT A COMPLIMENT!
What is Red Beans and Rice?
It’s red beans.
Only kidding. 🙂…
