Made this to share with a neighbor couple who are house bound, & since none of us likes things too, too spicy, & opted for just a bit too much so, in that I ended up using a mild Italian sausage, realizing full well that the andouille sausage has its own heat! Other than that, though, I followed the ingredients right on down & we had a very satisfying pot of beans! Nicely seasoned, & really not too much heat! Thanks for sharing this nice recipe!
