Black Bean Chili with Italian Sausage

olive oil
1 large onion - chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
1 can black beans - drained
1 can reduced sodium chicken broth
2-3 large italian sausages - chopped into small rounds
1 jar salsa
salt & pepper to taste
1 small can tomato juice

Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil until barely soft. Combine with the rest of the ingredients in a crock pot and cook all day on low. Leftover taco meat? Throw that in too! I also add a few chopped jalapenos. Top with avocado and sour cream. I serve mine with twice baked potatoes for a nice comfort food meal.


  1. Does it need to cook for a while or is it ready to eat right away?

  2. the longer it cooks the better. that way it can blend and its not a thin.
