Sprinkle herbs over everything. Add can of tomatoes. Pour stock or water over. It should cover everything. If it doesn't, add a little more water.

We love this bean stew over rice even though it's not traditional.


Use whatever kind of smoked sausage your family likes. It can be mild or spicy.

You can use canned beans, but you'll need to reduce the liquid and cooking time.

This can also be made in the oven in a Dutch oven - 250°F for 3-4 hrs
