Cook rice according to package directions. Microwave is best. Takes about20 minutes. Meanwhile, in saucepan, combine cans of beans, 2 cans water, Louisiana hot sauce (Red Devil is right kind but not Texas Pete or tabasco. Sauce is based on cayenne peppper.) Also onion, Creole and/or Cajunseasoning, avail. in spice or Cajun section of store; but LOOK OUT FORTHOSE THAT CONTAIN SALT if so, don't add too much and don't add extra salt.If Cajun seasoning contains salt, you can easily get too salty! Also mayadd cayenne pepper to taste; Black pepper. Chop up sausage (any kind is OKas long as "Fully cooked"; hot is preferable to most who prefer a hottaste!) Taste as you go to make sure not too salty or too hot. Boil slowlyfor about 20 minutes, until it begins to thicken and smells REAL good.Serve beans in bowl OVER white rice.
