1When I am in a hurry I use canned beans but dried kidney beans work great too. If you choose to use dried - Soak beans overnight in water before cooking. If you choose canned beans simply dump into a large pot.
2Sautee chopped onions (green and white) and garlic in a Tbsp of olive oil until wilted. Add to beans on medium heat.
3Slice sausage at desired thickeness. I usually cut them into half inch pieces and add to beans. Add Rotels as the mixture begins to simmer. Season to taste with salt and pepper or cajun seasoning if available.
4I usually simmer the canned beans for about 45 minutes until done, adding broth is my mixture is too thick as I go. When using dried beans you will have to simmer them for several hours until they are soft. If you find your mixture is too thin you can add a can of refried beans to it to get the proper stew thickness.
5When your mixture is about 45 minutes from being done begin cooking about 2 cups of white rice and preparing your favorite cornbread recipe. Mine is always Jiffy cornbread mix.
6When your beans are soft and you have your desired thickness, serve your beans and sausage over rice and enjoy!
