This is a hearty Southern dish, easy to make and full of flavor and quite spicy! I sometimes add in cooked ground beef, you can add in some chopped cooked bacon or use spicy dryed smoked sausage to the beans for smokey flavor --- I also like to add in some Creole seasoning -- see my The Best Creole/Cajun Seasoning Mix
