It may sound like a strange recipe, but the broth turns out so flavorful! I used smoked sausage because I don't care for brats, and both times I used different a different combination of beans. Black-eyed peas, kidney beans and pinto beans are my favorite combination. This is going to be a staple in the colder months!


I really enjoyed this recipe! It's easy to make, the flavor was complex,without being overpowering. It did taste better the second day, primarily because some of the starch from the beans helped to thicken up the soup. I think next time I'll mash up an extra can of pinto beans and add it thicken it up a bit. A really nice stew/soup! Thanks!


The only ingredient change I made to this recipe was using dried basil instead of fresh (I just didn't have any). I let this simmer on Low while I was at work all day. YUM. This was so so good. Filling and comforting on this particular snowy day. Can't wait to taste the leftovers. I can see this becoming a staple.
