Red Beans and Rice

I just made this one up as I went along. The dish itself turned out really good.

I'd say that this isn't your typical red beans and rice dish but overall it was liked in this house.

1 lb small red beans-soaked overnight

1 ham hock

1 onion chopped

3 garlic cloves minced

1 tablespoon chili powder

6 cups chicken stock

2 bay leaves

hot sauce

salt and pepper

3 cups cooked rice

Cook onion in oil over medium heat until tender. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the chili powder and stir until combined. Add beans, chicken stock, ham hock, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until beans and ham hock are tender. Add water if needed.

Remove ham hock and pulled meat off. Place the meat back in the pot. Remove bay leaves. Add cooked rice. Add hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
