Shadow's Red Beans and Rice

17 ingredients

CAJUN : Source: Shadows, adapted from the "Frugal Gourmet". File' may be found in most ethnic markets ( it is a sassafras based seasoning). There has been debate about the use of "Bay Leaf" in the original southern recipes for this dish, I have found it used and not used... Cooking time does not include overnight soak.
