In New Orleans it is tradition that you have red beans on a Monday; however these are not my favorite. I love baby green lima beans instead. This recipe can be applied to red beans, large lima beans, great northerner white beans, black eyed peas. Always creamy and always delicious over rice and served with corn bread.
