This is a hearty, delicious, quick 'n easy soup to put together.
Franks and Beans Soup
8 Jumbo size franks, cut into 1/8 to 1/4 inch slices
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
3 (11-1/2 oz.) cans condensed bean with bacon soup
3 and 3/4 cups of water
1 (15 oz.) can dark red kidney beans, rinsed & drained
1 (15 oz.) can light red kidney beans, rinsed & drained
3 teaspoons minced dried onion flakes
1/8 teaspoon, plus 1/16 teaspoon black pepper
In a large stockpot over medium heat, add the vegetable oil.
Add the sliced franks; cook and stir frequently for 4 minutes,
to lightly brown the franks.
Add the 3 cans of soup, the water, kidney beans, dried onion flakes, and pepper; stir to mix.
Cook soup over low heat, uncovered, until soup has heated through (about 18 minutes).
Yields: 6 - 7 servings
Note: The brand of franks I used to make this soup were, Farmland Hickory Smoked Deli-Style Franks, but you could substitute jumbo size hot dogs for the franks, if desired.
