Only gave 4 stars because I didn't exactly follow the recipe of HOW to cook this but I DID use the exact spices listed and it was fantastic! First off, I didn't have the bell pepper or sausage. I also replaced 4 cups of the water with home canned chicken stock. [Here's the method to my madness: 1)Sort red kidney beans and "soak" using (5 quart) PRESSURE COOKER (put beans into cooker with 4 cups of water, bring to pressure and cook 5 minutes, let cool naturally). 2)Meanwhile, cook "trinity" (onions, celery, garlic) in bacon grease instead of olive oil. 3)Once pressure cooker is depressurized, rinse beans with cold water. Return beans to cooker and add vegetables, chicken stock, water, and spices; stir. 4)Bring to a boil and lower heat to simmer, uncovered, for about 45 min-1 hour. 5)Steam rice while beans are finishing.] I thought the kids would think it was too spicy but it was just right for kids and myself. The hubby added more Tony's (Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning) since he likes it a bit more on the spicy side. I think Frank's Red Hot Sauce or Tabasco would also be an awesome addition. This is going in the meal rotation for sure!!
