“My spin on a classic red beans and rice. You can also make vegetarian as well.Hope you enjoy. I used fresh garden banana peppers b/c bell peppers were not fully grown yet, but if you have bell peppers I would use them instead. I had to change this recipe. I originally had it with regular rice and it wouldn't cook up fast enough so I changed it to instant. Hope this helps.”
