With red kidney beans, rice, cheese and plenty of spices, this recipe makes a nice version of a classic dish. It can be served as a main dish, and is quite good when accompanied by a salad and some crusty bread.

This dish does not remotely resemble "classic" red beans and rice.

My husband is a big fan or red beans and rice and loved this dish. It's not quite my style, but I still thought it was good. The servings seemed huge, so I only made half the recipe and it was plenty. I also think I used more red pepper flakes and less paprika.

I have used this recipe for several potlucks by just adding more rice. I have also cut up kielbasi into bite size pieces instead of ground meat for variety. I find this recipe very good and my bowl is empty before the end of the a potluck dinner!
