They go well with fish, chicken, or beef, and can be enjoyed as a side dish or a main course. But what if you don't live near a Wahoos restaurant, or you want to make them at home? In this article, we will show you how to make Wahoos Cajun spicy white beans using simple ingredients and a pressure cooker.
1/2 pound white navy beans (soaked for 8 hours in 4 cups water and 4 tsp kosher salt)
1 tbsp cooking oil
1/4 yellow or white onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup (4 tbsp) tomato paste
2 cups water
2 tsp chicken/vegetable buillon or 1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1-2 tsp cayenne hot sauce (such as Tapatio)
Drain the soaked beans. Grab your pressure cooker or a pot. Saute the onion in the oil on medium heat until translucent (about 3-5 minutes).
Add the tomato paste and seasonings and cook until fragrant (about 30-60 seconds).
Add the remaining ingredients including the drained beans and bring to a simmer.
Cook the beans in a pressure cooker for 30 minutes on the Bean/Chili setting or on the stove top covered for 2 hours.
Release the pressure and remove the lid. Stir the beans and continue simmering them on medium heat for about 10 minutes until the liquid has evaporated some and thickened slightly.
When beans are tender and liquid has become a loose sauce, serve and enjoy.
Tips and Variations
If you want to make your beans more authentic, you can add some tasso (a Cajun smoked ham) or ham bone to the pot. You can also use chicken broth instead of water for more flavor.
If you like your beans more spicy, you can increase the amount of cayenne hot sauce or add some red pepper flakes.
If you want to make your beans more creamy, you can mash some of them with a potato masher or a fork.
You can serve your beans with rice, cornbread, tortillas, or salad. You can also top them with some cheese, sour cream, cilantro, or green onions.
