  Andouille smoked sausage 12 Ounce (Fully Cooked, About 4 Links)
  Onion 1 Medium, chopped
  Green bell pepper 1 Medium, chopped
  Canned red kidney beans with liquid 31 Ounce (Light / Dark, 2 Cans Of 15.5 Ounce Each)
  Ketchup 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Molasses 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Hot sauce 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Cooking oil spray 1

Slice 12 ounces of andouille sausage into ¼-inch slices. Brown slices in a deep skillet and drain any excess fat. Add 1 chopped onion and 1 chopped green pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft. Add 2 cans of kidney beans, ½ cup ketchup, ½ cup molasses, and 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce. Stir until well combined. Spoon mixture into an 8-inch by 10-inch baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees (F) for 40 minutes, stirring after 20 to 30 minutes. You may bake this up to an hour, if you like the sauce thicker and browner. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy! --Betty
