READY IN: 4hrs 30mins




  • Soak kidney beans overnight OR rinse beans and add to pot, cover with 8 cups water and bring to boil. Boil for 2 minutes, then turn off heat and let sit, covered for one hour.
  • Pour out water and add 8 cups fresh water.
  • Chop onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic.
  • Add to beans.
  • Add salt, pepper, thyme, seasoned salt, and Creole seasoning.
  • Cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium low and cook for 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. When you stir, be sure to mash the beans against the sides of the pot. This creates a creamier texture.
