    I have had a container of dried red beans in my pantry for MONTHS now and I just decided I'd try making red beans and rice. So off I went, no recipe, just my intuition and by darnit if they aren't delicious! Woohoo!! I mixed brown and white jasmine rice and it's quite yummy.

    I figure the entire (big) pot will make about twelve meals, and I used about $1.50 worth of beans, another $1.00 worth of rice, two onions, one portabello mushroom and various spices and such to add flavor. So for twelve meals, I think it cost me about four bucks. That ain't too bad, eh?

    Just thought I'd share.

    You're absolutely right!

    For an even more complete meal you can pull the meat off of a juicy flavorful rotisserie
    chicken and fold it in at the end, with some chopped Italian Parsley...

    Isn't Jasmine rice a beautiful thing?
    I love the smell of it when it's cooking...
    It's incredible with just some butter, salt, fresh ground black pepper, and a lil' Kraft parm...
