Cajun Dirty Rice and Beans with Andouille Sausage
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.
