And also because it’s easy. And because it makes Banjo Man happy, especially if he has a loaf of special bread with which to enjoy it.
He especially likes it after doing this:
1 bag of frozen mixed peppers (yellow, orange, green)
1/2 bag frozen chopped onions (if you have them in the freezer)
4 cans of white beans, drained and rinsed
1 package of sausage (I used hot Italian sausage this week, but if you don’t feel like frying sausage and mashing it into bits, then slice up some andouille sausage or something similar)
1 32 oz container of chicken stock
INTO THE CROCK POT:
The bag of peppers, frozen solid is fine. Add the onions, too, but I used hot Italian sausage and it was spicy enough that we didn’t notice the absence of onions.
(Note: I am a terribly clumsy chopper of vegetables and almost always end up cutting myself, so to make life a little less violent I use chopped frozen vegetables when I cook.)
Put 2/3 of the beans and approximately 1- 2 cups of chicken stock in a blender and blend until almost smooth. Pour that in the pot, along with the rest of the stock and the rest of the beans.
Cook the sausage in a frying pan, drain, pat with paper towels and then put into the crock pot. Stir everything together.
Heat until hot. Then hang up the snow shovel and grab a great big bowl and spoon.
I told you this was easy!!!
