Traditional take on the classic red beans and riceIt seems just about everyone with a Louisiana pedigree has a secret recipe for making the region’s signature dish — red beans and rice. Which makes it a bit like chili and barbecue. Any time you try to write a recipe for it, no matter how you make it, no matter what you put in it, folks will line up to tell you that you got it wrong. It’s one of the things that makes tradition-rich recipes such as this so wonderful. People really care about what goes in the pot.
