This is a yummy recipe for red beans. I did use the precooked smoked sausage and added it for the last hour. I soaked my beans overnight but they had to cook for 3.5 hours before they were tender! I am glad I started them early planning to reheat for dinner or else they wouldn't have been done. I also added a little of Emeril's cajun seasoning to add more flavor. Thank you for sharing this!
