We went to Grandma and Grandpa's house today and got back home late. For supper we made this soup which doesn't take any longer to make than it takes to open a few cans, dump them in a pot and slice up a sausage. Start with two quarts of chicken broth in a big pot. I made this from the soup base that comes in a jar.
Add: a couple cups of pinto beans. This can be canned or from dry. I usually have cooked ones from dry beans in the freezer so that I can use them without having to plan way ahead.
1 can 15.5 oz. kidney beans
1 can 10 oz.RO*TEL diced tomatoes and green chilies
1 can 28 oz. diced tomatoes
1 smoked sausage sliced into bite size pieces
That is it! Let it simmer for a bit and serve with toast.
