Red beans and rice is a Cajun dish that can be your main entrée, a side dish or just a snack. My family will even have red beans and rice for breakfast with andouille sausage. Its great on a cold days to warm you up. There are variations to the the meats and sausage that you can add, but the  recipe is a basic recipe that every Cajun family knows.
