Tricia's Bean Soup Recipe

several minced garlic cloves - 3 or 4
1 T olive oil
1 32 oz jar of Bush's mixed beans
1 can of Swanson's chicken broth
1 can of pinto beans
1 can of northern beans
1 can of diced tomatoes
Oregano - to taste - I use about 2 tsp
Basil - same as oregano
1 or 2 Bay leaves

1 lb. of smoked sausage - added last


Saute onion and garlic in olive oil in a Dutch Oven.
Add next 8 ingredients.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for at least an hour.
Slice sausage into one inch pieces and add to simmering soup.
Simmer 10 minutes.

Serve with grated cheddar cheese and crackers.

Note: can also add ingredients to a crock pot and simmer all day. Yum.
