Expert Tips

If you enjoy a bit of heat, shake in some red pepper sauce during the last hour of cooking, but not before, since hot sauce will become stronger-tasting and bitter over long, slow cooking. You can also pass a bottle of red pepper sauce at the table so everyone can season the beans as desired.

Pair these savory beans with spicy andouille sausage or shrimp hot off the grill, heaping spoonfuls of hot rice and a side of fried okra for a southern-style dinner experience.
