Red Beans and Rice
This dish is so meaty, it's almost like a meal instead of a side dish!
1 lb. ground sausage
2 medium onions
1 Tbs garlic salt
3 cans red beans
2 small cans tomatoes
1/3 cup red wine *
1 lb. rope sausage, cut into chunks
Cook ground sausage with onion; add garlic salt. Drain off grease. Add remaining ingredients, simmer. Serve over hot rice.
Note: This is best if made the night before to give the flavors time to blend.
* If you don't have any red wine, or if you just basically don't like cooking with wine, chicken broth can be substituted; that works just fine.
**UPDATE** I added 1/2 lb. of bacon, cut into squares and cooked. It was a wonderful addition!
