This easy gluten free Andouille Sausage with Red Beans and Rice is an easy one pot meal perfect for busy weeknights!
This is one of Mr. Maebells favorite dishes! Spicy Andouille sausage is cooked until slightly crisp, and paired with sautéed veggies, tender red beans and a fiery tomato sauce! This is an easy weeknight meal perfect for chilly days! This is a great dish to take to a pot luck or to make for a get together. It makes a ton and keeps well!
My favorite thing about Andouille Sausage with Red Beans and Rice is that it is pretty easy to throw together, it mostly uses basic pantry staples you probably already have on hand. We love to pair this with these Cheddar and Summer Squash Cornmeal Muffins . It is a great flavor combination!
