Red Beans and Rice Soup




Red Beans and Rice Soup

This is a super fast soup to make using canned beans.  You can make it as spicy as you like.

  • 12 oz. kielbasa, coarsely chopped (I use all-natural.)
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 celery rib, minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, minced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (I used McCormick Creole seasoning which was mildly spicy.)
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cans red kidney beans, rinsed
  • 2 cups cooked rice

Cook first four ingredients in vegetable oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

Add garlic and seasoning and cook for 30 seconds.

Add chicken broth, beans and rice and simmer for 5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serves 6.
