LAKE CHARLES RED BEANS AND RICE

2 teaspoons chili powder (or 1 cup)
1 teaspoon ground cumin (or 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon Lawry's season salt (or 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon oregano leaves (or 1/2 cup)
1/2 teaspoon white pepper (or 1/4 cup)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper (or 2 Tbl.)
2 bay leaves (or 24 crushed)

1 pound red beans
1 pound smoked sausage and/or ham
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1-2 tablespoons spice mix
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cups uncooked rice
grated cheese and chopped onion for garnish

Rinse beans several times discarding any hulls or beans that float
to the top. Soak beans overnight (at lease 8 hours) in a large
pot of water, giving them plenty of room to expand. After they
have soaked, rinse beans again and place them in a pot covering
them with cool water one to two inches above the beans. Add celery,
onion, garlic, meat, and spices and raise to a boil. Reduce the
heat to simmer the beans. Stir occasionally. The beans will need
to simmer for two to three hours until they are soft and make their
own "gravy". If additional water is needed during the cooking
process, you must add boiling water! Add brown sugar in the last
thirty minutes to mellow spices.

Serve over boiled rice. As condiments, top with graded cheddar
cheese, chopped white onion or green onion, and tabasco sauce.
