Spicy Cajun Sauce
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
1 medium onion, chopped
¼ cup water
2 14 ounce cans Cajun-style stewed tomatoes
1 15 ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 15 ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen corn kernels
½ teaspoon chili powder
dash or two of hot sauce
Place the onion and water in a medium saucepan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion softens slightly about 3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, mix well and cook for about 10 minutes until flavors are well blended. Serve hot.
Hint: To make a thicker sauce, combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 1/3 cup cold water. Add to the sauce and cook and stir until thickened.
When the sauce was all heated and the rice cooker beeped, I just dumped the sauce in with the rice, stirred it up, and it sat there on keep warm until we finished our rainy day movie and were ready to eat.
