Ellen's Black Beans and Rice recipe

Title: Black Beans and Rice
Serves: 8-10

1 lb black beans
1 lb smoked link sausage
0 - ham hocks (optional)
2 - onions (diced)
1 can RoTel tomatoes & green chilis
1 tsp Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning
1 can chopped tomatoes (large can)

Prepare black beans according to instructions on bag for quick cooking, drain, then cook in pressure cooker. Fry/steam the smoked link sausage in a frying pan, drain, and cut into small pieces. To the beans add the sausage, ham hocks, onions, tomato & green chilis, creole seasoning, and chopped tomatoes. Cook long and slow, simmering until sauce thickens. If you use a crock pot, leave beans uncovered so sauce can cook down. Serve over rice with salsa and sour cream.
