      What a life saver this was. I used canned Kidney Beans. I did not drain them. Sweated the onoin is the pan with no oil. Did not add salt. But I followed everything else. Sure was great to me. Thank You so very much. Hugs

      I cut the recipe way back and took a short-cut - I used a 19 oz can of red kidney beans, I didn't drain them, and added them to a chopped onion that I had softened in the saucepan. Mashed 1/4 cup of the beans and returned them to the pot, added the cumin & chili simmered the beans & onions for apprx 15 minutes added the cut Anduille sausage and let it simmer for 10 minutes The end result was wonderful, bursting with flavor- served with an Italian bun to sop up the sauce - Thanks GrandmaG for a super supper

      This was really easy and very flavorful. I didn't plan ahead far enough, so I used Bergy's shortcut and used a can of kidney beans, undrained. I had to add about 1/4 cup of water for just a little more gravy. The smoked sausage I had was jalapeno flavored, so the dish had a little extra kick. I served it over brown rice, and it was quite filling. It's gone into my Make Again cookbook!
