  • Creole Butter Beans by Night Owl

    This is a dish I take to work at our potlucks. It always gets rave reviews and I'm always asked for the recipe. My dad and brother love this stuff!! So I hope you enjoy as well!

    CREOLE BUTTER BEANS

    1 pound dried large lima beans
    1/2 stick butter
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    1 TBS fresh garlic, minced
    1 fresh tomato
    1 TBS sugar
    1 can Rotel tomatoes
    1 pound sausage of choice, sliced (I used Hillshire Farms and use 2 pounds as the guys like a slice in every spoonful)
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 cups cooked rice

    Soak beans in enough water to cover, overnight; drain and rinse. Melt butter and add onion and garlic. Saute for 10 minutes. Add fresh tomato and sugar. Saute for 5 minutes. Add Rotel, beans, sausage and enough water to cover beans by one inch. Cook 2 hours or until tender. Add salt and pepper. Serve over rice.

    Serves 4-6

            LOL Bean
            These have a nice "bite" to them from the Rotels.

              I just got back from the store and got some dried large lima beans. I made sure I picked them up because next time I go back, there won't be any with my luck. I plan on making this soon (now I have too ). LOL

                Another tip is that I use smoked sausage (Hillshire brand is good). I prefer the smoked sausage over the kielbassi.

                  Smoked sausage sounds good to me.

                    I bet this would be wonderful with Rotel W:green chilis! I'm going to soak my beans tonight! Sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing. Beth

                          Fatkat, have you not seen the Mexican Rotel, Chili Rotel, Mild & Hotter Rotel? The only kind I do not buy is the mild and the hotter (not very good).

                            All our stores carry is Diced Tomatoes and green chilis. It's hot but not screaming hot.

                              I use the mild Rotel, dh can't handle the regular.
