This is an adaptation of a New Orleans style recipe. I've made it vegetarian & adapted it for the pressure cooker. If you're lucky enough to own a pressure cooker it's a great, fast way to cook any dried beans without soaking in less than an hour. In this preparation I intentionally mash the beans because I enjoy a thicker gravy consistency to my red beans. As a warning, I'm a southern girl so I enjoy food with a little kick. If you don't like spicy food, definitely cut the cayenne in this recipe in half.
