“This is a great Creole dish, and this is a good recipe. I usually have a bowl or two when we go to Louisiana. Very filling, and pocketbook friendly. Make sure you have a Louisiana hot sauce on the table so each one can "heat" it up. NOTE: There is a difference between Kidney Beans and Red Beans. The smaller red beans are similar to black beans, in that they never get truly soft. I recommend using Kidney Beans in this recipe.”
