Last night’s dinner was super quick and easy. First I started a pot of rice. I use an older style, stove top rice steamer. This is what I grew up with, and just can’t seem to get the hang of the electric ones. You can look them up by “Charleston Rice Steamer” if you are interested.
While the rice was cooking, I started pan frying a package of chorizo sausage, after taking it out of the casing. Once it was heated all the way through, I added a can of drained white cannelloni beans. You can also use Great Northern Beans. The sausage is pretty oily, and the beans absorb the oil and take on a really nice flavor from the sausage.
When the rice was done, I served the bean/sausage mix over rice. This was a filling, tasty and super quick meal. The rice takes about 45 minutes and everything else is finished about the time that the rice is done. You can either serve over rice, mix with rice or serve without rice… my family likes it anyway they get it!!
Easy Peasy Meal!
