Could you use kale or spinach in place of collard greens. I have never seen these available so don’t really know what they would be like.

This sounds delicious and healthy. What kind of red beans? I don't care for the texture of Kidney beans so I will need to substitute something.

Shirley, the most popular red beans in North America are kidney beans, but if you want to try a different one, here are some suggestions: black beans, pinto beans, navy beans or butter beans.
