Beans & Rice
2 1/2 c. small red beans (can also use black beans or half & half)
1 28 ounce can chopped or diced tomatoes
2 TBLS worsteshire sauce
3-4 Bay leaves
1 tsp. salt
1 large onion-chopped
4 cloves garlic-minced.
Soak beans overnight. Add enough water to just cover the beans. The
next morning if possible, add all the other ingredients. Bake for
about 1-2 hours in 350 degree oven OR on top of stove- until beans
are soft. If uncovered in the oven a nice "crust" will form. Stir a
few times during cooking. You may have to add extra water. Serve
over rice if you want or just plain. We made them with black rice
and it was delicious! Any kind of rice will do though.
Toppings: hot sauce, fresh tomatoes, lettuce, onions, salsa
