Friend of a Friend's Red Beans and Rice

I've never been to Louisiana for "authentic" red beans and rice, but this is really good. I found this recipe on a blog named "use real butter," and the blogger got it from a friend that clipped it from a newspaper in Farmington, NM. It has a very nice spice mixture and serves a ton of people! I usually make half the recipe when I make it, because it's just my husband and me, and that way I can enjoy it for lunches too. I use a whole bay leaf in the half recipe, and I have found that King Soopers/Kroger sells Aidell's chicken and turkey sausage (12 oz.) that is fully cooked with the flavors of spicy mango and jalapeno. They also have a habenero and green chile one, too. I have used both (at different times), and they are both good, when I half the recipe. I posted the original recipe that was on the blog, so you could do whatever you'd like! Also, I like to serve French bread or cornbread with this.
