Red Beans & Ham (Kidney Beans)


1 pack of Creative Cajun Cooking’s Bean Magic

2 pounds of dried Red Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained

11 Cups water

1-1/2 pound of cured ham, cubed

1 cup Green Onion Tops chopped for garnish

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


In a 6 quart or larger pot, add beans, ham, water, and Bean Magic Seasoning. Stir it up, bring it to a rapid boil over medium high heat, then set it on low heat and let it simmer about 2.5 hours, stirring every now and then. For a creamier consistency, smash some of the cooked beans against the side of the pot with your spoon, and stir them into the juice. Serve the beans over a bed of rice, then sprinkle with the green onions.
