Red Kidney Beans

The Camellia Brand signature bean – creamy, hearty, and beloved in New Orleans and across America’s Gulf Coast. It’s an old New Orleans tradition to cook up Red Beans and Rice every Monday, which was historically the laundry day. Simmer or slow-cook them to creamy perfection with the holy trinity of vegetables and add ham hocks and other seasoning meats if you like. Plate them as is or with smoked sausage, fried chicken, or a pan-fried pork chop on the side.

Red kidney beans originated in Peru and are part of a larger group called “common beans,” which were cultivated as early as 8,000 years ago.
