Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 2 stalks of celery diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 lbs Andouille sausage cut into ¼-inch rounds
  • 1 package 8 ounces Vigo Authentic Red Beans and Rice mix
  • 2 ½ cups water
  • hot sauce served at the table
  • green onions chopped for garnishment

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the onions, green bell pepper, and celery until tender; about five minutes. Add Andouille sausage and minced garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, for five minutes.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the Vigo Red Beans and Rice mix with 2 ½ cups of water.
  4. Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Combine the Vigo Red Beans and Rice mixture and the trinity and sausage mixture in the baking dish. Be sure to stir together so the mixtures are well combined. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 45 mins.
  5. Remove foil, stir, and return to the oven for an additional 5 minutes. By this point, the rice should be tender and the liquid is absorbed. If not, place in the oven uncovered and cook an 5 minutes.
  6. Fluff the red beans and rice with a fork; allow to sit for 5 minutes. Serve this Vigo Red Beans and Rice Casserole garnished with sliced green onion and topped with your favorite hot sauce! Don't forget the warm French bread or cornbread! Enjoy!
