Spicy Sausage and Bean Soup

(3 Votes)
35 Min

What's the best part about a comforting bowl of this spicy sausage and bean soup recipe? Could it be that it's so chock-full of hearty ingredients that it's an easy main-dish soup...meaning we don't have to make another thing for dinner?!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pound bulk hot sausage (see Note)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 (15-1/2-ounce) cans Great Northern beans, undrained
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans ready-to-use chicken broth
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a large soup pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, onion, and garlic; cook for 5 to 6 minutes, or until no pink remains in the sausage, stirring frequently to break up the meat.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.

I like this soup spicy, but if you prefer to use a mild sausage, or even turkey sausage, go ahead. Make it your own!

Outstanding. Used most of these ingredients, kicked it up with some leftover ratatouille. Family loves it!

We NEVER tire of this soup. I substitute mild Italian Sausage (bulk) for the hot Italian and cut back on the amount of bean (2-3 cans). This is so simple and ready to bring to the table in less than 45 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and a big salad and you have a complete meal. I have gotten many requests for this recipe. Love it.!!

Mac & Cheese Burger

We paired two American favorites to make one outrageously good summer recipe. Our Mac & Cheese Burger is a big juicy burger that's topped with lettuce, pickles, bacon, and...macaroni and cheese! Make these burgers at your next cookout and we're sure you'll have the most interesting burgers on the block!
