Red Beans With Tabasco


1 lb. red kidney beans

1 ham bone or ham hocks

2 med. onions, chopped

1/2 c. chopped bell peppers

2 or 3 bay leaves

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tsp. cumin powder

Red pepper to taste

Dash of Tabasco sauce

Salt to taste

1 lb. smoked sausage (sliced)


Wash and pick over beans. Cover with cold water and soak overnight. Cover beans with 2 to 3 inches of water, using the water they were soaked in. Add ham bone, onions, bell peppers, bay leaves, garlic cumin powder, red pepper and Tabasco. Cook slowly for several hours about 3 to 4. Add salt after the beans are tender. The beans will make a thick gravy. About 20 minutes before the beans are thorough cooking, add sliced sausage. Serves 8. Serve with rice and hot french bread.
