I made this recipe last night and it was a big hit. I did however make a few minor changes. I didn't cook this in the crockpot as the recipe states. I sauteed the green pepper, onion, and celery in two tablespoon of olive oil. I sliced the sausage and cooked them for 10 minutes in a separate pan. I added all the ingredients to the veggies and mixed everything together well. I added the sausage last and let all the ingredients cook together for about 45 minutes - 1hr. Once it was done we ate it over rice. I used red onion instead of the white onion. I also added 1 tbs of cumin. I will definitely make this again.

I started making this for a softball team that I cook for on Sundays. Then for my sisters and brother. As of yet I havent' found anyone that doesn't like these beans with sausage. I use dry beans and soap them two days and rinse about 4 times during that soaking time. I also go for the slow and low method, low heat and up to 12 hours in the slow cooker. Melt-in-your-mouth GOODNESS!!


This recipe was Awesome! I made it in the slow cooker. I cooked the sausage whole, then cut the sausage into medallions and browned them before adding them. I also cooked it on high for the first 2 hours and only cooked it for a total of 5 hours. It turned out really tasty, a little spicy, and perfect with rice. It can be kept for a long time int he fridge and it feezes well too! I would definitely recommend this one, even for kids! Get some fiber in them!
