Zatarain's New Orleans Style Black Beans and Rice

This one I love!  On a scale of 1 - 10 this one is a 10+

It's quick and easy to make.  The flavors are blended perfectly.  Plus when you consider you can eat a full cup cooked and only have 220 calories and no cholesterol, that's not bad.  Sodium is a different story so this is not a dish you would want to eat too often if you're watching your salt intake. 

I did add another ingredient to this tasty dish - chicken.  I cooked 2 chicken breasts, cut it into bite size pieces and added it during the last 5 minutes of cooking.  YUM!!!  Again, I warn you about the sodium content but still have to say this is a delicious dish, with our without the chicken.
