2-3 TB Cajun seasoning, recipe below
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced

Heat some oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add celery, onion, bell pepper, garlic and sausage. Break the sausage into small pieces, and cook until vegetables are tender and meat is cooked.
Stir in Cajun seasoning. Stir in rice and parsley, and cook until rice is warmed.

1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 (16 oz.) can red kidney beans, drained
1 (16 oz.) can chopped tomatoes (do not drain)
1-2 tsp Cajun seasoning, recipe below

Heat one tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over low heat. Saute bacon with onion and bell pepper until the bacon is cooked and vegetables are tender.
Add in garlic, beans, chopped tomatoes and Cajun seasoning. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Serve over rice.


CAJUN SEASONING

1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2-1 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp black pepper
