Great hearty soup that is simple to make. You could add andouille sausage for a stronger flavor, but I like the mildness of the smoked sausage.

  • 2Add the beans, water or chicken broth and the tomatoes. Stir to blend. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3Season to taste with salt, black pepper and cayenne, but remember that the salt meat, sausage, bacon and tomatoes are salty and peppery. Skim off any oil that has risen to the surface. Serve hot. Makes about 10 servings.
