In New Orleans, nothing is sacred except food. This specialty of the South's culinary mecca is traditionally served for dinner on Monday nights, but you can enjoy it every night of the week.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced celery
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 bay leaves
Kosher salt (if using table salt, decrease the amount by half)
One 15 1/2-ounce can kidney beans, including liquid
1 pound andouille sausage, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 cup cooked long grain white rice, warm
Four 10- or 11-inch flour tortillas

Flavored Tortilla Suggestion:

King Creole Recipe at
Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, oregano, paprika, onion powder, and bay leaves. Cook until onions become tender, about 5 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Transfer to a large saucepan and add the beans. Heat over medium heat.

Clean the skillet thoroughly to remove all of the spice residue. Return the skillet to the stove and heat over high heat. Add the sausage and cook until crisp, about 5 minutes, turning to brown all sides.

Transfer the sausage to the bean mixture using a slotted spoon. Add the rice and stir to combine. Remove the bay leaves, divide the filling among the tortillas, and wrap.

Andouille sausage is one of the finest contributions the French made to Cajun cooking. It is a full-flavored sausage complete with garlic and seasonings. If you can't find it, substitute kielbasa or hot links in its place.
