  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large cloves garlic, lightly crushed with the side of a knife blade and minced
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, stem and seeds removed and small diced
  • 2 (1-pound) cans red kidney beans
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup white rice

Directions

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan. Saute garlic, onion, celery, and bell pepper until tender. Stir in kidney beans, onion powder, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Reduce heat to low and let mixture simmer slowly while you cook the rice.
