Beans and rice with sausage is one of those dishes that makes you sit back and rub your stomach after you finish eating.
It is also one of those dishes I like to prepare after I make a big pot of pinto beans with ham or turkey to serve wth cornbread.
The next day, when there are still plenty of pinto beans in the fridge, I break out the spicy ground sausage and white or brown rice to give those delicious pinto beans a different twist.
Pinto beans are easy to repurpose. You can put them in just about anything, including salads and they will add that special something that makes the meal even more incredible.
