Spicy Beans with Turkey Sausage

Spicy Beans with Turkey Sausage


1 lb. smoked turkey sausage, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 can (16 oz.) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (15.5 oz.) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 to 1 cup chicken broth (enough to fill pot at least halfway)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. ground cumin

You can also make this on the stove top. Sauté the onions and green peppers in a stock pot that has been sprayed with cooking spray until soft prior to adding the other ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and let simmer for 30 minutes.

This was delicious and filling! I loved that it was full of fiber and protein. I used a salsa that was a little too hot for the kids; next time I will be sure to use a milder salsa so that the preschooler will eat it.
