Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the beans with the water and let soak overnight. Beans will double in size so be sure to use a large enough bowl. In the morning, drain and rinse the beans.
  2. In a large pot over high heat, combine the beans, chicken, sausage, bay leaves, cumin, onion, garlic and sherry. Add enough water to cover all ingredients.
  3. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until beans are tender. Add tomato paste to soup and stir until dissolved.

Excellent starter recipe! I used chicken thighs instead of breasts for a heartier poultry to match the robustness of the sausage. I also allowed the liquid to reduce by half to create a chili-like dish. Canned beans can be used to speed up the recipe but don't skimp on simmering time to allow the sage and bay leaves to do their jobs.

this is a very easy recipe but lacks flavor and spice. I used canned black beans to save time with soaking overnight.

This was really tasty over rice, as the author suggested. I found that the addition of a little hot sauce was just the perfect touch. This one is definitely a favorite around my house!

It is a great recipe for a rainy day. The taste is great. We also added 1 tsp. salt and 2 tsp. granulated garlic which enhanced the flavor.

Overall very good. I did add salt and increased the spices. Topped with lime fresca (lime zest and sour cream).

This was an okay recipe. I ended up adding alot of spices because I found it bland. I think I'll hang with my old recipe for black bean soup.
