Red Beans (Kidney Beans) & Ham


1 pack of Creative Cajun Cooking’s Bean Magic

2 pounds of dried Red Kidney Beans, rinsed

10 Cups water 

1-1/2 pound of cured ham, cubed

1 cup Green Onion Tops, sliced for garnish

cooked rice for serving

If using Smoked Sausage instead of ham, slice and stir in to the beans after they are cooked, just to heat up the sausage.


In a 6qt or larger pressure cooker (like an Instant Pot), add one pack Bean Magic seasoning, stir in 10 cups of water, rinsed beans, and cubed ham. Cook on “Bean” setting (or manual high pressure) for 65 minutes. When that's done, do a Natural Pressure release after 15 minutes. For a creamier consistency, smash a few cooked beans against the side of the pot and stir them into the juice. Serve with cooked rice and garnish with sliced green onions.
