Zatarain's Black Beans and Rice Mix
Zatarain's Black Beans & Rice is a delicious Creole recipe with a Caribbean influence. Savory, but not hot, this mix goes great with a variety of meats or can be served by itself as a meatless entree. This mix has precooked beans so total preparation time is under 30 minutes.
The Zatarain's tradition of making amazing food was started by Emile A. Zatarain, Sr. In 1889, he obtained the company's first product trademark and started to market root beer. Shortly after, he began to produce mustards, pickled vegetables, and extracts. As the business grew, so did the demand for a broader range of products. Through their expertise in blending spices, the company established a reputation for making only the most authentic New Orleans-Style food. In 1963, the Zatarain family sold the business which was then moved to Gretna, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans, where it is still located today.
