I was looking for an easy bean and sausage meal i could throw in the crockpot and this was it. great flavor.
This is very good, a great comfort food! I have been making this for some time and use 2 15 oz. cans of butter beans instead of the kidney beans. I usually add 1/4 cup golden brown sugar and somteimes add a large green pepper, thinly sliced. Thanks for posting.
This was terrific. Perfect comfort food. I've made this several times and it is now our regular halloween meal as it's easy to make and extremely satisfying. Great on a chilly night before trick or treating. Thanks Big Mike
