DIRECTIONS

  • Slice sausage, then cut into quarters. Cook it in a large saucepan until well-browned for 5 to 8 minutes. (I added about one tsp of oil so that it would brown nicely).
  • Add all the vegetables, including garlic, and saute until they begin to brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in bay leaves and thyme. Cook 1 or 2 minutes more.
  • Add beans to pan. Using a potato masher, mash about one-fourth of them. Add chicken broth. Bring mixture to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 15-20 minutes until vegetables are tender and sauce is thick.
  • Discard bay leaves. Season to taste with Tabasco, cayenne and black pepper. Serve over rice.
