Bean Sausage Soup

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.

Makes

6-8 servings (2 quarts)

I made this colorful, robust stew often when our three kids were living at home. Since it calls for lots of canned vegetables, it stirs up in a jiffy. It's versatile, too-you can substitute cubed turkey, chicken, ham or beef for the sausage. Plus, you can replace the beans with other vegetables of your choice.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound smoked sausage, halved and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 cans (10 ounces each) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
  • 1 can (15-1/2 ounces) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) lima beans, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Hot cooked rice, optional

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients. Heat through. Serve with rice if desired.
