There have been a lot of Red Beans and Rice recipes floating around out there lately and I have noticed something about them. The photos look like the red beans are almost a stew consistency, very thick, laying on top of a bed of rice. Now I am not an expert on this meal, but I have a great recipe that I make that comes out with the red beans being looser than that. Not really soupy, but juicy, so that when you mix it with the rice it blends well. Like when you put the beans on top, the juices start to seep into the rice, not just lay on top of it. I'm not sure how to explain it. Could some of you Red Beans & Rice experts weigh in on this.
