A zippy twist on a basic zucchini soup recipe. Easy to make in a crock pot or stovetop and delicious taste! Adjust the amount of jalapeno you add to your desired heat, we like it nice and spicy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a Dutch oven or soup kettle, cook and crumble sausage over medium heat until on longer pink; drain. Add onions and cook until soft.
  2. Add rest of ingredients to kettle and bring to a boil. (If you are using a crock pot transfer meat and onion and add the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot. Let cook on low until vegetables are tender or approximately 1 to 1-1/2 hours Can leave it on all day if you need to, it just gets better with time!).
  3. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hrs or until vegetables are tender.
  4. Serve with crusty bread or noodles and enjoy!

Loved this soup! Used the hot Italian sausage and a bit more tomato paste as I like a richer tomato sauce. The zucchini and black beans really added a nice touch. Will definitely make again -- thanks for the post! Made for Spring PAC, 2012.
