Saturday Cooking

As I’ve mentioned in earlier blog entries, I like to spend Saturdays and Sundays cooking and preparing for the week ahead. Yesterday, I decided to cook my go-to meal, beans. I like spicy food, so I got this “recipe” from my dad, who also shares the desire to have flames shoot out of his ears. Hope you enjoy!

Cajun Style 16 Bean Mix


  • 1 package of Kroger brand Cajun style 16 bean soup mix
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes with jalapenos
  • 2-2 1/2 tsp of oregano
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of chopped onions
  • a few dashes of onion powder to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Follow directions on the back of the bean mix and begin cooking.
  2. After around 10 minutes, place can of tomatoes in with the bean mixture.
  3. After around 20 minutes, add in the spices and onions.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover and let simmer for around 1 1/2 hours or until tender.


Serve with tortilla chips or crackers and enjoy!
