Recipe: Creamy Red Beans And Rice

Hello my lovelies, hope you are doing well! The other day my boyfriend put in a special request and asked me if I knew how to make red beans and rice. I hadn’t particularly made this recipe in quite sometime but I was up for the challenge. As soon as I could, I went online and looked up a few recipes but my friend Paras makes them all the time and he told me that his friend had an amazing recipe. I went on The Gurley Chef instagram page and she gave step by step instructions on how to cook the iconic meal.

I went to the grocery store and tweaked the recipe just a bit to my liking and got out the big ol pot and started cooking. I must say the recipe was amazing, not confusing and so good! My red beans came out creamy and full of flavor! Check out the recipe inside and follow The Gurley Chef on her YouTube page where she has even more great recipes! Step inside for the recipe…


Chicken Broth

Smoked Turkey Wings

Turkey Kielbasa

2 bags of Red Beans



Season Blend Vegetables




Seasonings: Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Season Salt, Creole Seasoning, Onion Powder

I first started by washing and soaking my red beans overnight. This reduces the cooking time. After that, I rinsed the smoked turkey wings then I added a whole carton of Chicken Broth to a big pot plus ALL the ingredients like seasonings, vegetables, garlic etc. After that, I poured in the red beans and meat. In another skillet I cooked the kielbasa’s sausage and added that as well.

Brought it all to a boil and then reduced the heat to simmer, add thyme on top. Do not keep opening the pot, just let it simmer for at least over 1 to 2 hrs. But keep checking, stirring and taste. If it needs any additional seasoning add that. After it was done, I made a side of rice and fried catfish. This was a great dinner, so good!
