Sounds delicious! I haven't tried it yet - just found it in Tony Chachere's Cajun Country Cookbook.

I've made this a number of times and it is excellent. You have to be careful with the seasonings depending on what kind of hot sausage you use. I usually use Louisiana hot links or andouille which are spicy and not too hot. I made it once with a brand of hot links I was not familiar with and they made it way hot, which I liked, but a lot of people I served it to couldn't stand the heat and put potatoes in it to kill the heat.

  1. 1. Brown bacon in large Dutch oven. Remove, crumble and set aside. Slice sausage into one-inch pieces and fry in bacon fat until brown. Remove and set aside with bacon. Pour off excess fat and fry ground beef. Drain and set aside with other meats.
  2. 2. Pour off excess fat from pot. Saute onion, bell pepper, garlic, and hot pepper over low heat for 2 or 3 minutes. Mash tomatoes. Add tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, Burgundy wine, and meats to onion mixture. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer. Season to taste with creole seasoning and simmer for 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally. Add beans with liquid and heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
