+1Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

This recipe is something like my Chili Con Carne recipe. One big difference is I've never used chicken broth in it. I'll bet that would make it really tasty. I do use tomatoes and tomato sauce. Instead of the sausage I use ground beef chunked up. I'd like to try this recipe. It looks so good.
