Here's how to make it:

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot. Add the sausage, onion and pepper. Cook until sausage is brown, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, bay leaves, thyme, cayenne and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes. 
  2. Remove the bay leaves. Take about one-third of the beans out of the pot and mash with a fork. Return to the pot and stir. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over the cooked rice with Tabasco sauce on the side.
