  • 6 Quart pot
  • Cutting board and sharp knife
  • Measuring spoons, measuring cup.


  • 2/3 Bell pepper OPTIONAL: I like to spice it up by adding in a little hot peppers, such as jalapeno, cotch bonnet, etc .
  • 1 TBSP Olive oil
  • 1/2 Onion diced
  • 2 TSP Garlic minced
  • 4 Cups Chicken broth I use unsalted or low sodium.
  • 1 Cup Tomato sauce
  • 1 Can Black beans–drained and rinsed well until no bubbles form when running water over them.
  • 1 Can Cannellini beans –drained etc
  • 1 Can Great Northern beans – drained etc
  • 1 Can Red Kidney beans – drained etc
  • 1 Can Pinto beans -drained etc.
  • 2 TSP Cumin
  • 1 Tsp Coarse salt
  • 1 TSP Black pepper
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • 2 TSP Garlic powder
  • 1 TSP Onion powder


  • Heat large pot to medium high heat. Add olive oil and saute the diced onions and red pepper until onions go clear.
  • Add garlic and saute together well for about a minute.
  • Add chicken broth and tomato sauce.
  • Drain and rinse all the beans and add them to the pot. I do this ahead of time so i can just add them right in as called for.
  • Mix the pot continually until it slowly begins to bubble on the edges.
  • Add the cumin, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder and mix until well combined and soup is pretty much to a boil.
  • Top with sour cream and green onions or tortilla chips.
  • Serve warm


You can also add in a smoked ham hock to add some smokiness. Or saute some diced up bacon when you are sauteing the bell pepper and onion
i typically serve this with a mixed green salad, cornbread and cut up fruit for dessert. 
This soup will freeze great in an airtight storage container for up to one month.
Serve a white or rose wine with this.
