This was a tasty and easy to make soup.
I added an extra can of black beans. I love them.
I didn't have a fresh chipolte pepper to add so I used chipolte powder instead.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a soup pan with cooking spray and bring up to medium high heat. Add onions and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the sausage and cook for another two minutes. Add the bell pepper and garlic. Cook an additional 2 minutes.
  2. Add the broth, cumin, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and add chipotle and beans. Cook covered for about 10 minutes.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve with a sprinkle of Cilantro or some fat free sour cream.
  5. **Variation Idea: I have tried this as a smooth soup -- brown off the turkey in a separate pan, following all of the other directions up until the point the beans are added. I use a hand held blender to blend up the soup. Afterwards I add the turkey and some additional beans to give a little texture.
