Ingredients

    2 pound bag La Preferida dried black beans
    1 32oz. box low sodium Progresso chicken broth
    1 1/2 cup diced carrots
    1 cup diced celery
    1 cup salsa
    1/2, 6 oz can tomato paste
    6 cloves garlic
    1, 14 oz. package, Eckrich smoked turkey sausage
    2 Tbsp. oil
    2, 14.5 oz. cans Hunt's diced tomatoes
    1 large sweet onion, chopped
    1 red, sweet pepper, diced
    1 jalapeno pepper, diced fine
    1 can chopped chilis
    3 Tbsp. chili powder
    1 Tbsp. cumin
    1 Tbsp. Mexican oregano
    1 tsp. sea salt

Directions

Soak beans according to instructions on bag. Drain beans.
In a large stock pot, add beans, chicken broth, carrots, celery, salsa, garlic and tomato paste. Add about 6 cups of water. Bring to a boil, turn heat down and simmer until beans are mushy, about 3 hours. Mash or blend the soup until thick and creamy.
Chop the sausage into bite size pieces, and in a separate frying pan brown in 2 Tbsp. oil. Add to soup. Deglaze the pan with a little water or broth and add to soup.
Add all other ingredients. There is no need for further cooking, I like the fresh crunchy taste of the pepper in the soup.
Makes 20, 1 1/4 cup servings.

    This is simple to make. I have to cut the recipe in half because I don't have a pot big enough to hold it all! Leftovers freeze well for another quick meal later. - 6/3/10
