  • 12 cups chicken stock or broth
  • 6 Italian sausage links uncooked (I used half hot and half mild, should equal about 4 cups of sausage when cooked and chopped)
  • 1 medium sweet yellow onion chopped
  • 2 green bell peppers chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced (I'm in LOVE with my garlic press)
  • 2 cups carrots chopped
  • 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes drained
  • 3 cups uncooked mixed beans* I used the HamBeens 15 bean soup mix, without the flavor packet
  • 4 cups cooked and chopped chicken breast click here to learn how to always have cooked chicken breast on hand!


  • (If you want to do things all right and proper, rinse your beans and soak them in a large covered pot overnight. I didn't do that.)
  • Bring chicken stock to a boil and add uncooked sausage (I actually boiled 16 sausage links and set aside the extras for another dish. This is a great way to impart additional flavor into your soup while also saving yourself cooking time on your next sausage dish). Also add carrots, onion, green pepper, tomato, and garlic.
  • Bring back to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer for about 30 - 45 minutes, until sausage is cooked through. Remove sausage and brown both sides in another pan on the stove top. Chop sausage into bite size pieces and set aside.
  • Add beans to soup and bring to a rolling boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for two hours, or until beans are tender (this will happen faster if you were responsible about soaking your beans in advance).
  • When beans are tender, add chicken and sausage to soup and simmer an additional 20 minutes. Add 1 - 2 cups of water, if necessary to achieve desired thickness.
  • Serve and enjoy!
