      Just got back from New Orleans and was going through NOLA food withdrawal, lol. Made these last night....soooo good! I used creole seasoning that we picked up while in NOLA, red beans and threw in a ham bone. We let it simmer for a couple of hours constantly smashing the beans up. It was amazing! Tasted just like some of the beans we had in New Orleans. Instead of rice, we boiled some red potatoes in a creole seafood boil seasoning and served it along side. Awesome. Thanks for the recipe, this is a new favourite!

      I make this all the time and, yes, I am from Louisiana and, no, I don't live in a swamp. Made for Spring PAC 2012.

      Great recipe. I did make one sub and that was to use red beans instead of kidney beans. A real Southern gal would never use KIDNEY beans! The seasoning was right on. I surely wish I'd had andouille, but had to settle for plain smoked. Thnx for sharing your recipe, lolablitz. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted! http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
