Sunday Lunch Bean & Corn Soup

I made up this soup one day when I wanted something fast but homemade and tasty. You can substitute other smoked sausage or even chorizo, but this is what I had on hand and what was used in the recipe. I like to crumble corn chips in this soup and it's good with a little sour cream, too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan saute the smoked sausage, onions and garlic in olive oil until lightly browned.
  2. Add the beans, corn, tomatoes, chicken broth, water, chili powder, oregano, cumin and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Combine thoroughly and simmer together for 30 to 45 minutes.
  4. Serve with corn chips and a little sour cream on the side.

Very good and satisfying soup! Quick to put together and I almost always have these ingredients on hand, which is a plus. We ate this with crushed tortilla chips and light sour cream. I will definitely be making this again!

This recipe was VERY easy. I used chicken as I didn't have any sausage on hand but I don't think my taste buds suffered one bit! I put all the ingredients into the pot and fed my 1 year old daughter. By the time she was done eating and ready for her bath, the soup was ready! I put her to sleep and my hubby and I had a lovely dinner together. Thanks for a great night at home! The soup was delicious and we will DEFINATLEY make it again! (loved the touch of cumin by the way!)
