Ingredients

    TBS Olive oil
    medium onion, chopped
    5-6 cloves garlic, chopped
    2 medium carrots
    4 oz. can of chopped green chilis
    1 14.5 ounce can of chopped tomatoes
    2 bay leaves
    tsp each of cumin, thyme, and chili pepper
    3-4 cups of water (depending on how "soupy" you want it)
    1 cup frozen corn
    4 al fresco chicken sausages (gluten free)
    1/2 bunch of cilantro, chopped
    2 cups of dry pinto beans

Directions

Soak 2 cups of beans overnight. (Mine expanded to 5 cups, so make sure your container is big enough!)
In the morning, rinse the beans and put into a crock pot with 3-4 cups of water. Add the chopped carrot, chili peppers, seasonings and corn, and set to high.
In a pan, saute the onion, garlic, oil and sausages until a bit carmelized. Add to crock pot, and cover. Let run for at least 5 hours.
Serving sizes are according to my ladle, which is approx 3/4 to 1 cup. With 4 cups of water, this gave me 14 ladles worth. I used 2 ladles for my bowl & topped with green onions and a dollop of whole yogurt.
I also served this with corn bread.
