I am from New Orleans, I live about 6 minutes away from the French Quarter on the Westbank. This is a good recipe. I follow the recipe on the back of the dried kidney beans ( use camille brand) and I do it in a slow cooker and towards the end i take out about a cup of beans and mash them and add back to pot and it thickens them.Some times I add hot dog wennies to them also which is how my mom made them for us kids in place of sausage.(budget friendly version)LOL!

Very good! I used smoked sausage for this recipe and omitted the salt. An inexpenisve and very tasty meal!

Insanely delicious!! Used low-fat smoked sausage (all I had on hand), and Miss Annie's Cajun Seasoning #28100. I had to add more water as it cooked - it was probably simmering a little high. This is one of those perfect meals that are inexpensive, simple to make, really filling, and super tasty! Thank you for posting!! Update: made this again and covered while simmering - didn't have the water problem (should have known! hehe) Thanks again! :)

Absolutely delicious!!! SOOO easy to make....I used the exact seasoning specified, and I couldn't be more happy! Although I only had 1/4 of the anduouille sausage that this called for, I added a couple of shakes of hot sauce to compensate. I also smashed some of the beans just because I like that "mashed" texture mixed with the whole beans. A definite keeper for me! And I will make this often. Thanks for posting this easy, yet very flavorful recipe! :)
