READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by kellychris

This is a good, easy way to make red beans that my mom showed me. I do it the lazy way with canned,but feel free to add onion or whatever spices you want if you use dried.

I liked this recipe because it is basic and was easy to adapt to my tastes. I used 1 15 oz can of red kidney beans and 1 15 oz can of white great northern beans (I drained and rinsed both cans). I used a yellow pepper from my garden and added a small onion to the mix. I used spicy sausage (would have been really good with kielbasa, too). I sprinkled some creole seasoning into the beans while they simmered. Finally, I served them over steamed basmati rice & garnished with some fresh, chopped green onions (also from my garden). Delicious lunch! I GNOME I will make this again! Thanks for sharing this recipe, kellychris!
