Western Bean Soup

This is a cool recipe. Very yummy because it gives a little bite to the flavor of the soup with the picante sauce in it.


  • 4 bacon strips
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 (16 oz.) can refried beans
  • 1 Tbsp. picante sauce or salsa
  • Ad

  • 1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • hot pepper sauce (optional)
  • shredded cheddar cheese


In medium saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towel to drain. Crumble and set aside. In the drippings, saute the onion and celery. Sprinkle with the garlic powder. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add beans, picante sauce, broth, parsley and bacon; bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes, uncovered. Season to taste with hot pepper sauce, if desired. Ladle into bowls and top with cheese. Serve with tortilla chips or corn bread.
