Sausage and Black Bean Soup

This is a great weeknight soup as it goes together fast, has lots of flavor and doesn’t make too much.  Adding salsa to a soup is a great way to quickly add a lot of flavor. I like soup but many recipes just make too much for me. My sister shared this recipe with me a few years ago and reminded me of it the other day when we were visiting.

This is a great way to use a bit of sausage if you’ve used half a package for something else and have leftovers.  We like kielbasa generally but it’s also good with beef sausage. Use whatever kind you like.

I make this even if I don’t have fresh cilantro but the fresh cilantro does add a lot.

Quick Sausage and Black Bean Soup

  • 6 ounces cooked sausage (kielbasa, etc.), sliced
  • 1 cup chopped red and green pepper
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Brown the sausage slices, then add the chopped peppers and cook a few minutes, until softened.

Add the chicken broth, beans and salsa.

Bring to a simmer and cook covered for 10 minutes or so.

Stir in the fresh cilantro and serve.
