  • 4 sausages cut into 1 (2.5 cm) inch pieces, I used wagyu cheddar beef
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 2 medium carrots chopped
  • 1 large onions chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 habanero chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper cubed
  • 56 oz beans 4 cans of 14 oz, mixed type
  • 28 oz tomatoes crushed fire roasted, canned
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp sugar granulated
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 tsp pepper or to taste


  • Add the sausages to a medium size frying pan and cook them for 10 minutes or until browned on all sides; don't worry if they're not cooked through, they will continue to cook with the beans. Set aside.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat then add the onions and saute for 5 minutes until soft and translucent.
  • Add celery, carrots, garlic, habanero and red pepper to the pot and continue to saute everything for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add one cup of water, sugar, beans, crushed fire roasted tomatoes, bay leaves, salt and pepper and let simmer for 30 minutes covered.
  • Remove from heat, garnish with parsley, cover and let sit for another 5 minutes.


  • If you think there is not enough liquid for your taste you can add some more tomato juice or water though this is not a soup but a stew.
  • Cooking time will definitely increase if you use dry beans.
