White Bean Soup
Serves 8. I’ve had this recipe for a long time and have no idea where it came from. It’s quick to make and tasty.
3 tbls. vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
½ lb. smoked sausage, cut into ¼-inch pieces, if desired
½ lb. smoked ham pieces, cut into ½-inch pieces, if desired
3 (15.8-oz.) cans white beans (Navy or Great Northern Beans), drained
3 (14.5-oz.) cans chicken broth
1 (10-oz.) can Original Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chilies
1. Heat oil in Dutch oven. Add onion, celery, sausage and ham. Cook, stirring, until vegetables are tender, about 3-4 minutes.
2. Add drained beans, chicken broth and Ro-Tel tomatoes. Stir, bring to a boil and simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until flavors blend, stirring occasionally.
3. Taste for seasoning.
