Bean soup with sausage is total comfort food.

Bean Soup with sausage recipe is perfect for cool fall days and makes a hearty winter soup as well. I love most any kind of soup and this one will definitely hit the spot. Just add some cornbread or a grilled cheese sandwich for a meal. This soup will keep for several days in the refrigerator and freezes well. A satisfying dish your family will love.  You might also like to check out our recipe for Mexican bean soup.

Bean soup with sausage is one of my very favorite soups to serve in fall and winter.

1 pound pork sausage

1 small onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

1 cup chopped celery

1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1 (14.5 ounce) can navy beans, drained and rinsed

1 (14.5 ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 cup chopped baby spinach, (optional)

2 potatoes, peeled and cubed

2 cups water

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon thyme

1 bay leaf

Brown sausage, onion, green pepper and celery in a skillet. Drain. Combine browned ingredients with all other ingredients in a large pot on top of the stove and simmer for about one hour or until potatoes are done. Makes approximately 10 cups of soup. Enjoy!

Note: This could be done in the crock pot, too. Just add your cooked sausage mixture to crock pot along with other ingredients and cook on high for about 4 hours or low for 6.

Slow cooker tips:  Most meats are better cooked on low heat.  Switching back and forth from low to high and vise versa can cause dry meat.  It is best to thaw meat before cooking and browning on top of the stove will give you a better flavor.  Put larger pieces of food on the bottom of the pot because it takes longer to cook.
