I had some nice French sausage sitting in my fridge, which I had bought from the Straw Stick and Brick stand at the Farmers market. Beans and sausage is such a wonderful combination and total comfort food! Feel free to use any sausage here. I used a spice called Whoop Ass (love the name!) Whoop Ass is spicy so a little goes a long way. It contains: Habanero, Chipotle, Ancho, Birdseye, and Cayenne Chilies. Cumin, Fennel Seed, Brown Mustard Seed, Oregano, Allspice, Black pepper, Organic Vermont Maple Sugar, Organic Onion, Organic Garlic and Himalayan Pink Salt. You can use a combination some of these spices and chilies or just purchase a can of Whoop Ass :) —Marale Garabetian

Drain and add the beans.
Add the can of diced tomatoes.
Add the water, spices and season with salt and pepper. Give it a stir.

The apartment should smell amazing! Season again if needed, garnish with parsley and eat!
