Tried this today myself, and wow! its gonna be on my cold weather lunch list for sure. Used half Tasso and half Cajun brats that I had frozen uncooked. Opened up the links and browned with the Tasso. The beans nicely absorbed all of the spices from the 2 different meats. I used a brand of black beans that was "Cuban". Don't know if that made any difference but they had a very nice consistency. No pics, my camera is at work. Thanks Habs!

Thanks. It is a good soup to build on, I have to try some of your variations. It also tastes good without meat.

...It also tastes good without meat.

But what would be the point?

LQ, I have friends down there that love that heat thing, but I really enjoy 73 degrees and a nice blue sky up here in the SF Bay Area. 98 to 112....gimme a salt pill and then a 6 pack of Heinekan to replace lost fluids and send me home! ;D

With cooler weather around the corner, rain for the last three days and coming for the next 5,  i decided to get the small soup pot out and knock the dust off of it.
what better way than with Habs recipe.
again i cannot say enough good about it.
if you have not tried this yet you will kick yourself for waiting.

Do you think that vegetable broth would work in place of chicken broth my daughter is on the dark side (vegetanarianism) and I am trying to make sure she gets different choices for protien ?

UIS;

Thanks for bringing this recipe back up. Like you say, with the cooler weather, I tend to start making more comfort foods.

bflosmoke,

Vegetable broth will work great with this recipe. I'm so use to only using chicken broth that I overlooked that ingredient.
