DIRECTIONS

  • Soak beans as directed on package. Drain the beans and place in large stock pot. Cover with the 2 quarts water. Add ham bone and sausages, onions, green pepper and seasonings.
  • Cover, lower heat and simmer several hours.
  • Mash some of the cooked beans against the side of the pot to produce a thick creamy sauce.
  • Cook 2 more hours over low heat stirring occasionally.
  • Season with Red Pepper Sauce to taste.
  • Serve over cooked rice.
  • The bean mixture can be frozen either in single servings or family style for future use. I have frozen individual servings with rice and this works great. Adjust the heat levels with additional peppers or pepper sauce according to your tastes.
