The addition of tomatoes to traditional bean soup, add a lot of flavor and interest.
If a crowd shows up some Saturday, toss this together and you have a great supper in a jiffy!! I make this for potlucks and bring it in my crockpot. I never bring any home!!!!
- 1/2 lb
- sausage, either smoked or polish (i use turkey), you can also use bacon, diced and lightly fried & drained)
- 2 large
- jars of beans, great northern or mixed your preference
- 2 can(s)
- diced tomatoes, w/chili peppers
- 5 medium
- medium - about tennis ball size (red potatoes, scrubbed and cut in 1" pieces (i leave the skins on)
- 3/4 c
- water - more or less
- 1/2 tsp
Scrub potatoes, (I leave skins on), chunk them, about 1-1/2" in size, add to pot
Check the consistency and taste the soup...you may want to add another can of tomatoes, and if it's thicker than you like, give it a little more water.
Cook very slow about 1-hr on stove, bring to a boil, stir frequently You can serve as soon as potatoes are done...or...transfer to crockpot, cook on slow for 3-4 hours to allow flavors to develop.
