The term “dirty” in rice and beans comes from the seasoning added to the pot while the rice is cooking, giving the traditionally white grains a brown color. This Cajun rice and beans recipe makes the seasoning easy with our Blackened Cajun Seasoning. A one-pot meal that's also easy on dishes and time — in 30 minutes, you’ll have a hearty and flavorful meal on the table.


  • ½ pack (7 to 8 ounces) andouille sausage, sliced, making just over 1 cup

    2 teaspoons sunflower oil

    1 small green bell pepper, chopped

    ½ yellow onion, chopped

    2 ribs celery, diced

    3 cloves garlic, minced

    1 cup long grain rice

    1 can red beans, drained and rinsed

    1¾ cups water

    ¼ cup Frontier Co-op® Organic Blackened Cajun Seasoning


    1. In a heavy-bottom 2-quart (or bigger) pot over medium-high heat, brown andouille sausage. Remove sausage and set aside.
    2. Lower heat to medium and add sunflower oil. Add bell pepper, onions, celery and garlic, and sauté for about 3 minutes, until aromatic.
    3. Add rice and cook for 1 minute, stirring continuously.
    4. Add beans, water and the cooked sausage.
    5. Add Blackened Cajun Seasoning, and stir.
    6. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover pot and cook for 20 minutes.
    7. Turn off heat. Leaving pot covered, let the dish rest for an additional 5 minutes.
    8. Serve.
