This was great! I swapped out the bacon for kielbasa and it was awesome. I took it to our church Christmas pot luck and it was gone. I will make this over and over again.


The only thing I changed was to add a can of stewed tomatoes per the package instructions. I also purchased a mix that included a cajun seasoning packet, so I added that as well. I used a pound of center cut ham - diced it up and left the bone in the soup to add more smokey ham flavor!

YUM! I know this passed the test when my hesitant husband completely polished off his bowl and went back for more. I didn't have any bacon, but I DID have some smoked sausage, made the switch, and it was great. I didn't cook the beans overnight, I just soaked them. Really easy and an awesome "cold weather meal" (words of the aforementioned hubby.) This will make an appearance on my dinner table again!
