DIRECTIONS

  • Sort and wash beans.
  • Soak beans overnight in water.
  • Add spices to beans and bring to a boil.
  • Using a heavyweight covered pot, simmer 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
  • Stir occasionally to ensure they do not burn.
  • During last hour add sausage.
  • During last 1/2 hour make white rice.
  • (For this recipe I boil 4 cups water and 1 teaspoon salt. Once water is rolling add 2 cups white rice. Bring to another boil, cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook on stovetop for 30-35 minutes. Do not uncover pot to stir until cooking time is completed.).
  • Serve beans over hot rice.
  • Add cheddar cheese and green onions to top if desired.
  • ***Note to make these beans thicker, when sausage is added, remove 3/4 cups of the beans from pot and mash. Return mashed beans to pot.***.
