Sylvie's Spicy Bean and Bacon Soup
135 mins (prep 15, cooking 120)
18 ingredients

I soaked some beans the other night to make a veggie chili, but then I found some bacon and spicy sausages (mine were German sausages similar to Kielbasa) in the freezer that needed using up, so I made up this soup instead. We enjoyed it so much that I thought I'd share. This is a very hearty and quite thick soup, which will fill you up and warm you through. Adjust the heat to your taste by reducing or increasing the amount of chili powder and chipotle. I used a 7-bean mix, but I'm sure any kind of bean mixture would work well. Eventhough the sausage is an optional ingredient, it really adds to the flavour of the soup. I followed one of the reviewers suggestions and added garlic the second time I made the soup and have since added it to the recipe as an optional ingredient, it was rather a good addition. Cooking times, include cooking the dried beans.
