Easy Pinto Bean Soup

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.
