It can be made in a crockpot (soak beans overnight, or at least 6 hours, first), or cooked on top of the stove. Eat as a main course soup OR SERVE OVER RICE, like a true cajun would! My husband eats ALL beans over rice! This 15 Bean recipe can be made with either Cajun spice pack, or the plain, with salt and pepper to taste.

Ingredients

    * 1 Bag of 15 Bean Soup Mix

    * 1 14-oz pack of Oscar Mayer Smoked Turkey Sausage - cut each link length-wise, and then in slices to make half moon slices.

    * 2 tsp of minced garlic

    * 1 Bag of PictSweet Frozen Seasoning Blend (or 2 cups chopped onion, 1/2 cup chopped celery & 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper)

    * 2 tsp of Hot Pepper Sauce (Tabasco or Crystal, or LouAnn)

    * a good shake of pepper vinegar (optional)

    * Salt and Pepper to taste.

    * 3-5 quarts of water (depending on how "soupy" you like it)

Directions

Rinse Beans.

OVERNIGHT SOAKING METHOD:
Soak overnight in about 3 quarts of water (in large pot that will be used to cook beans) or at least 6 hours.

Bring beans to a soft boil. Add garlic, frozen season blend (or fresh chopped onions,celery and bell pepper), sliced sausage, and hot pepper sauce. Shake a little pepper vinegar into pot (optional). Bring down to a low simmer and cook for about 45 minutes to 1 hour until soft. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste. Go easy! Remember it is easier to add salt, but almost impossible to take it back out! :)

CROCKPOT METHOD. Same as above, except just throw everything into crockpot, put on low, cover and come home that night to a tasty meal!
NOTE: If you forget to soak beans, you CAN boil them for about 30 - 45 minutes on top of stove before going to work. Then transfer to crockpot and carry on! Make sure there is enough water to cover beans by at least 2 inches.

STOVETOP METHOD:
In large pot with about 3 qts of water, bring beans to a rapid boil. Boil for about 45 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Bring down to a simmer, and add all ingredients. Cook for about another hour on low heat, until done.

SERVE as a soup (about 1 cup per serving).
CAJUN: Serve over 1/2 cup of rice in a bowl.

Delicous with cole slaw or potato salad and slice of french bread. And bread pudding for dessert!
