Reviews for Hearty Sausage 'n' Beans
"This is one of my weeknight go to recipes"
"This was a great recipe. Very hardy and filling. Even my picky 9 year old loved it. Will definitely make again!"
"loved this! Both of my picky boys ate all of it and asked for seconds. Only thing I changed was I used ranchstyle beans instead of pinto b/c that was what we had. Really good!"
"I have made this numerous times and my family loves it. I have taken it to church pot lucks and I have always come home with an empty pan."
"Tasty and quick! Was great with Jiffy cornbread on the side. Will definitely be making this again!"
"I've made this recipe twice. First as it appeared in the magazine, the second time I made one change. Instead of using the tomatoes with mild chilies I used a can of tomatoes with habaneros. Gave it the right amount of punch. This was an easy weeknight recipe and I will be making it again."
"This was very good considering how easy it was. I used turkey smoked sausage and ommited the oil using Pam instead to save calories. I also used black beans because that is what I had on-hand. My husband liked it and once I convinced the 4 and 5 year olds that it was good they ate it right up!"
"This was so easy and my whole family loved it. I used instant brown rice and had to add a little more water to make sure the rice was cooked through, but it was great! Will be making again soon!"
"I found the tomatoes to be too overwhelming in this recipe. I think if they'd been left out (or perhaps only 1/2 the amount?), it would have been much better. Doubt I'll make it again without making adjustments."
