(Inside: Oooh, weee, cherie…it’s gettin’ hot–ok, I’ll stop. It’s getting very bayou up in my house lately–and we’ve had a little Instant Pot Cajun Red Beans and Rice as a dinner a couple times this month. So I thought I’d share the recipe with you.)
Alright, alright, I’ll put away my poorly-replicated Cajun accent.
I get it–I am from Texas, NOT Louisiana, so I have no idea really how to say the things…how to roll the rr’s, so to speak (but just FYI, I can speak pretty good spanglish, so there’s that).
Regardless of my skills with the dips and dance of the tongue on the Cajun-language, I can TOTALLY pull of the dips and the dance of the tongue with Instant Pot Cajun Red Beans and Rice.
Seriously, y’all (that’s a Texas y’all, not a Louisiana y’all, just for posterity sake there), these red beans and rice will rival ANY you can get at Popeye’s Kitchen.
Don’t let it be said that the Instant Pot Cajun Red Beans and Rice doesn’t deliver.
Because it does.
So much that my husband went back for seconds. And thirds.
I was stunned.
But totally justified in going back for seconds myself. Heh.
Alright now, you need to pin this recipe fo Instant Pot Cajun Red Beans and Rice. No, don’t argue–you’re going to lose it and then be like “oh noes!” when you need it most. Like say when you’re hungry. So just do it.
