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.  

Camellia’s Red Kidneys are non-GMO, gluten-free, and meet the “Hayward Standard” which exceeds the top USDA requirements.

This simplified recipe lets your slow cooker do the work, with no hands-on attention required and no soaking. Just dump everything in, set it and forget it. Using pre-chopped trinity makes the process even easier.
