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

Nothing like red beans and rice served with Kato's Cornbread, green onions and Authentic Southern Fried Okra to round things out. I did adjust this to cook it in the crock pot. The water was reduced to about 6 cups.

I made this for Fat Tuesday this year, and loved it. Only change I made was to use small pink beans instead of kidneys. Kidney beans are too harsh for "real" red beans and rice. Perfect for Mardi Gras and the cold snap we've had here in Florida!

This is delicious! Talk about an inexpensive and filling meal! Only change I made, was to exclude celery and green pepper (hubby isn't in to them). I did however, add some celery seed. Served this over rice....would definitely make it again. A winner for the whole family. Thanks for posting. :)

Made exactly as written, and it was truly awesome! It has a very nice kick, just the right amount of heat. Recipe going into regular rotation.

Yum! This took a while but it was really good. It really all depends on your cajun seasoning so pick a good one!! Thanks for the great recipe lolabitz....
