Stove Top

Ingredients

1 bag(s)
small red kidney beans, picked and soaked overnight
6 c
water
4
celery stalks, diced
1
bell pepper, chopped
2
onions, diced
2 lb
smoked sausage
2 Tbsp
creole seasoning
1/2 lb
bacon, cut up
2
bay leaves

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add cut up bacon to dutch oven. I choose to add my onions, celery and bell pepper at this time and cook them all together so they all get a wonderful carmelization.. Slice smoked sausage in half then slice it into bite sized pieces and add to veggies and bacon. When all is carmelized. Add about 6 cups of water and the drained and rinsed soaked beans, and the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and cover and simmer. This will actually be done in about 45 minutes but I like to cook mine for 3-5 hours, the flavors marry and it is wonderful. Serve over rice.
