Red Beans and Rice Burritos + Bayou Boogie

After Easter dinner, I wanted to use the leftover ham bone, so I cooked a big pot of Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice. As usual, my family devoured them, but I still had some left and decided to whip up these delicious family favorites. When I tell you that they are fab, then you know that I mean it, cher! And so easy for those busy days. Bon Appetit!

Red Beans and Rice Burritos

2 cups cooked red beans
1 cup cooked rice
1 red onion, chopped and divided
1/4 cup jalapenos, (jar variety)
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese, divided
1 cup salsa, divided
1 tsp. or more Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
4 flour tortillas

In medium bowl, combine red  beans and rice, half of onion, half of cheese, and half of salsa. Mix well and add Cajun seasoning and mix again.

Spoon evenly onto tortillas,  roll up, and place on a greased baking dish. Top with salsa, then other half of onion, cilantro, and jalapenos. Top with remaining cheese and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve with a cold beer and enjoy!

I'll be sharing these at ~

Bayou Boogie

We had an absolute bon temp at Downtown Alive where the fabulous"Louisiana Red" was rev-ing up the crowd with their version of "Going Back to Big Mamou". One of my dear friends was really wearing out her dance partner. That's her in the green floral shirt, with the blonde hair. This one's for you, cher!

Hoping you're all having a wonderful Springtime week! Merci beaucoup for coming by!

Yet another wonderful treat for the lucky people.

These red beans and rice look so good, but that Easter Dinner looked good enough to buy an airline ticket and crash your party. You make my mouth water. I heard about you from my wife she is a devoted follower. You follow her, too. She talks about your blog all the time. Now it's my turn to follow. I love cooking, but mostly in my smokers. I have three and I'm in the process of helping my nephew build one. I will be posting step my step photos as we build. It's a whole hog smoker on a trailer. Great for big cookouts. I would love it if you would visit my blog, I'm very new at this and just started a couple weeks ago, so I don't have much posted, but working on it. Your new follower, Steve
Hope you like it enough to follow me too.

You always have such delicious looking dishes – I try not to come and read your blog when I am hungry… This recipe looks quite easy and certainly delicious too.
