Cajun Skillet Beans Recipe

[To make things easier, I always use dried, canned spices and buy a can of peeled tomatoes.]

Step 1

Saute onions and garlic until soft, then do the same with the celery and bell peppers. Add the spices and cook until the onions are golden. Add all other ingredients except the peas and simmer for 5 minutes, covered. Add the peas and cook until the peas are heated.
