Red Beans and Rice for a group, Mix or not.

guitarpah | Jul 6, 2012 12:06 PM

Calling all Cajuns (ok, Creole).

I got about 25 servings of red beans (6 quarts) cooling in an ice bath, and I'm gonna make the rice tomorrow. My question is, smother or mix?

If I top the rice with the beans, it's more authentic, but the rice may dry out and firm up, sitting there on the table, and the ratio might get off.

If I mix it, I control the ratio and the rice stays moist, but it is so.... non-Creole.

Opinions?
