  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • ¼ cup diced celery
  • 1 package (8 ounces) Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice mix
  • 2 ½ cups water
  • Garnish: sliced green onion and/or fresh parsley


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch or 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  • In the prepared dish (or in a separate bowl), stir together all of the uncooked ingredients until completely combined.
  • Cover tightly with foil and bake for 50 mins.
  • Remove foil, stir, and return to the oven (uncovered) for 5-10 more minutes, or until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Fluff with a fork, allow to sit for about 5 minutes, garnish with sliced green onion and/or parsley, and serve!
