I've been researching how to make red beans & rice myself. I found a recipe I like, just gotta find a decent ham bone or ham hock. The last time I was at the grocery the ham hocks looked gross and I couldn't bring myself to buy any.
On the next rainy weekend, I'm going to try making it and a big pan of corn bread.

Red Kidney beans are what most people use....Camellia being the brand I use the most...they seem to be smaller than others...They also package a pink bean that works well. There is a Small Red Bean...sometimes referred to as Mexican Red Beans...they are mostly round and hold their shape well during cooking. Sometimes I mix the two...The kidneys getting soft and making "gravy" while the Small Reds give some substance....Bottom line the Kidney is what most people use because of availability.

I've only heard them referred to as kidney beans. Red beans sounds so much better.

Your welcome Pacanis! Next time you make Chili try pintos for a change instead of the Kidneys. Also if you can find the Small Red (Mexican Red Bean) they are an excellent Chili bean too!

Have Fun!
