White Beans is a great way to feed your family multiple times. We love our White Beans with Smoked meat like ham hocks or pig tails. Smoked sausage in beans are very popular.

There are 4 types of white beans: Great Northern Beans, Baby Lima Beans, and Cannellini Beans and Navy Pea Beans.

I recently created a brand new White Beans Instant Pot Recipe. Simple and easy, no matter your cooking level, you can nail this Louisiana Dish.
