I have a Cajun friend who swears that Camellia brand are the best beans to use for red beans and rice. Recently while shopping in a local butcher shop I spied a bag of the kidney beans my buddy said were the best. So who am I to argue with a Cajun, so I bought a bag.
I sauteed my onion, garlic, and celery together. Then did the same with my Andouille sausage and green pepper. I grabbed too small of a skillet to combine all of those together, hence two batches.
Everything was tossed into the crock pot along with a couple of ham hocks that I had the butcher split open.
Let's just say I had a delicious supper after work that evening.
