  1. In a large pot over high heat, heat the oil. Add the bacon and saute for 2 minutes. Add the onions, bell pepper, garlic, bay leaves, sausage and ham hock and saute for 2 more minutes.
  2. Add the beans and saute for 2 more minutes. Stir in the Cajun-style seasoning, Worcestershire sauce and stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the salt, cover the pot and simmer for an additional 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the pot to sit, covered, for about 20 minutes. Discard the ham hock.

I live in South Mississppi, and my family LOVES this recipe! I leave out bacon and ham hock, I mix Anduoille sausage and smokey hollow cajun sausage. Also, I use 4 cans Van Camps New Orleans style Canned red beans instead of dried kidney beans....Also, cut the chicen broth in half, we like it thick! Huge winner in our house!

This was SOOOO yummy!! I made it last night and it was DELICIOUS. Changes I made: I used polish kielbasa as andouille sausage is hard to find. I put in the whole package as I wasn't about to leave half a package in the fridge. I left out the bacon as it really doesn't need it and it's too fattening. I left out the ham hock as the store only had them in packs of three and I wouldn't use the others. I'd imagine that they'd give the dish even MORE flavor, though... I added three cans (about 6 cups) of broth as 8 cups seemed like a lot to me and I wanted it to be thicker. I topped it with the rice, sliced green onions, a small dollup of fat free sour cream, and some shredded colby jack cheese. Serve it with cornbread and you have a heartwarming dish on a cold day!
