Quick Turkey-Bean Soup

This recipe calls for canned beans, so cooking time is minimal. I make soup mild and allow guests to add as much "heat" as they want with hot pepper sauce.

    This recipe was delicious! I had to tweak it a little because of what I had on hand, but it still worked great! I'll make this again!

    Works well without the green pepper, needs the red pepper. I used turkey broth at first, but beef broth improved flavor. Fresh basil worked well. Used jarred garlic.  Also used some diced can tomatoes and the stewed - (I made 1/3rd more of the soup.) Really liked this soup. Used my own frozen corn. This soup had a FRESH Flavor...
