Rinse the red beans in with water, drain and set aside. Put oil in bottom of the pot and frying the sausage. Season the sausage really well with Tony's Cajun seasoning. When the sausage is about 1/2 cooked, stir in the chopped vegetables. Fry on Medium-Low until sausage is cooked and the vegetables are limp. Pour in the beans and water, cover and cook on medium-High Add the garlic, 3-4 drops tabasco, beer. While the mixture comes to a boil. Cook the rice in another pot with 2 cups of water. Reduce heat on beans to a simmer, and stir often. When the rice is done, the beans should be about done.
