I'm dumping this recipe -- copied from an email I sent last year -- in my journal so that I don't have to go searching through Gmail archives every time I do the groceries. It's my go-to lunch in winter -- I tend to alternate this with corned beef sandwiches. And yet, I forget the recipe all the time.



Ingredients
  • minced garlic to taste
  • half a red onion
  • celery, I dunno, I usually use about two or three stalks?, sliced
  • a red capsicum, sliced
  • a green capsicum, sliced
  • optional: some kind of meat -- I've had success with bacon, and also with diced chicken, and I'm contemplating chorizo for the next round
  • one can kidney beans
  • one can black beans
  • vegetable stock, I can't really give you a quantity, but enough to immerse all the ingredients?
  • Tabasco sauce, or any other hot sauce
  • spices: I've been going with chilli flakes, onion powder, smoked paprika and a dash of cayenne, but it's up to you and your taste
  • rice

Method:
  • Saute the garlic and onion, then brown the meat.
  • Add the celery and capsicum, stir for a minute
  • Add rinsed beans, spices, Tabasco and stock
  • Bring to the boil, then let simmer until the stock is reduced
  • Cook some rice
  • Mix it all together
  • Eat
  • Dance

I eat something similar much of the time. It is yum.

This is similar to classic Cajun red beans and rice, so I can confirm that it works great with chorizo.

This sounds excellent. What kind of dancing have you found to yield the best results? Interpretive? Box waltz? Flamenco with dish towel?
