This grew out of my addiction to Campbell's Bean with Bacon soup. Of course, I now have my own recipe for the soup and don't have to use canned unless I want the convenience. My husband loves smoked or polish sausage, so this is a marriage of two favorite foods.

serves 5-6
prep time 20 Min
cook time 1 Hr


  • 1 lb
    polish keilbasa or smoked sausage (beef, pork or turkey, your choice)
  • 1 c
    diced green or yellow pepper
  • 1 c
    diced onion
  • 1 can
    navy or great northern beans, drain and reserve liquid
  • a little olive oil if your sausage is lower fat
  • 1 can
    campbell's bean with bacon soup
  • 1 can
    ro-tel diced tomatoes and green chilis (optional)

How To Make

  • 1
    Slice the Keilbasa into 1/4-inch diagonal pieces. In a large skillet, brown the sausage with the peppers and onions until onions are translucent but not browned. Place sausage and vegetables into a 2-1/2 quart casserole dish. Add the drained navy beans and mix well.

    Stir the bean liquid into the bean with bacon soup, and mix well - you should do this in a mixing bowl, not in the can. Add the soup mixture to the casserole and blend well.
  • 3
    Cover and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. (Then, if desired, top with the can of Ro-Tel.) Uncover and continue baking another 30 minutes or so, until done to your liking.

    Another option: you can also mix the Ro-Tel with some cooked rice (about 1 1/2 cups) and spread on top. Or you can stir the cooked rice into the casserole before baking.
