Very good recipe with a lot of flexibility on ingredients. I added another can of red kidney beans and more sausage with no problems to the recipe. I would be careful with the amount of pepper flakes you add as this recipe can get a little spicy depending on the andouille sausage you use. I loved it, but some people are sensitive to spiciness. If you don't mind it go for it!!

This makes for a great hearty soup! I used red beans, chick peas, and black beans - gave it nice colors! For a less smoky flavor, I thought to try regular sausage and even add a can of diced tomatoes - but that would make it a completely different recipe, but good too. I like the Parmesan rind idea, too! No matter what, making it just the way the recipe is, is scrumptious!

Wow! I was really surprised how good this turned out and how easy it was. This is going to be by cold weather staple! The flavors go together really well and it's ready in minutes.

This was really delicious. I substituted sausage with Cajun chicken sausage and one celery stalk with a carrot. I also added white pepper. I used black beans and chick peas and a Parmesan rind. Both my husband and I were very pleased!
