2 1/2 lbs of ground Turkey
14-28 oz hickory smoked Spicy Andouille Sausage
( Andouille Sausage is typically made with pork, but can also have turkey and beef combinations that has been seasoned with garlic and cajun seasoning. Cut the sausage into small bite-sized pieces 1/4 inch slice cut in half or quarters)
1 20oz bag of dried beans for Hurt’s Cajun 15 bean soup
(After soaking over night should equal about 4 cups of festive beans)
Note: The 15 varieties of bean is really closer to about 18: Northern, pinto, large lima, yellowed bean, garbanzo, baby lima, green split pea, kidney, cranberry bean, small white, pink bean, small red, yellow split pea, lentil, navy, white kidney, black bean
