I didn't know what to make for supper tonight, so I came up with my own recipe from what sounded good. Each one-cup serving only has 132 Calories and 1.5 g of fat! Lots of good fiber and veggies, too.
2 bratwurst-sized turkey sausages
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 14.5 ounce can black beans
1 bag Kroger Seasoned Corn, Black Beans, Peppers, and Onions (frozen)
1 bag Kroger Brown Rice (frozen)
1 clove garlic
1/4 tsp (give or take) chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
Brown the sausages, whole, in the bottom of a sauce pan. When they're almost done, cut them into slices. Meanwhile, drain and rinse 1 can of black beans. Return the sausage to the pan and add a can of diced tomatoes (add the tomatoes first to deglaze the pan), the beans, a whole bag of Kroger's Private Selection Seasoned Roasted Corn, etc. Also add a whole bag of Kroger's frozen brown rice. Add 4 cups of water, and any additional spices that you want (a clove of garlic and chili powder, but you may like cilantro or any number of other spices... Experiment! Spices are free!). Simmer for 20 minutes (as with all soups, the longer the better), and serve with tortilla chips, and maybe a dollop of fat free sour cream or a sprinkle of fat free cheddar cheese (not included in nutrition info).
Now, someone tell me how to thicken up the broth, it was a little thin. Do I need to add a can of tomato paste? The flavor was good, though, even though it was thin. I hope you like it!
