      1 (1 lb) package red kidney beans
      1 green bell pepper-diced
      1 medium onion-diced
      3 celery ribs-diced
      1 tsp salt
      1 tbsp pepper
      3 tbsp creole seasoning
      3 garlic cloves-minced/grated
      3 quarts water-(I add 2-3 bouillon cubes-beef or chicken-no MSG)
      1 lb smoked sausage-sliced


      1. Soak kidney beans overnight.
      2. Pour out water, rinse well, add 3 quarts water, and bouillon cubes-if using; Add to beans.

      Add salt, pepper and Creole or Cajun seasoning.
      4. Cover and cook on low heat 4 hours.
      5. Add smoked sausage to beans and cook 45 minutes.
      Stir beans occasionally while cooking.

      For the RICE:

      2 cups water
      1 cup rice


      1. Bring 2 cups water to boil.
      2. Add 1 cup rice; cover tightly and simmer on low until rice is

      tender and water is absorbed.

      Serve Red Beans over hot, steaming rice.

      Can make this in a slow cooker also.

      I forgot to add that a can of rotel or tomatoes can also be added for added flavor and veggies.
      I’ve made it both ways and enjoyed both. 😉
