Quick Bean Soup

A co-worker of mine brought this soup for everyone to sample at lunch one day. I ended up eating a heaping bowlful even though I don't normally care for soup. It's that good.—Dorothy Anderson, Woodstock, Illinois

    This has become a favorite at our house when we want something quick and tasty. I lighten it up by using Lite Smoked Sausage or Turkey Smoked Sausage.
