Tina and her mom are huge Tennessee Titans fans and they love to yuck it up at the Titans games in Nashville and tailgate with all the fans at the stadium. My mother in law, “Obbie”; affectionately named by our children from her given name of “Robbie”, makes the best soup. She calls it Sideline Soup and has made it for many a game day crowd and is good on any cold night in winter. We often enjoy it as our #SundaySupper
She said the recipe came from The Tennessean, Nashville’s newspaper. We made a batch last weekend and it was a treat. In the deep south, not too many meals are wanting of a piece of cornbread. This meal is not exception. I made a skillet of cornbread and also a pan of corn sticks. Great for dipping in the soup!
1 – 16oz. Smoked Sausage – sliced thin
1 – 15oz. can of black beans, drained
1 – 15oz. can of great northern beans, drained
1 – 15oz. can of red kidney beans, drained
1 – 14 1/2oz. can of diced tomatoes
2 – cloves of garlic, minced
1 – small onion, chopped
1 – 14oz. can of chicken broth
1/2 – tsp oregano
1/2 – tsp ground cumin
1/2 – tsp salt
Combine all ingredients in a stockpot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
Notes From Obbie: “I cook my soup longer than 15 minutes. More like 45 minutes to an hour. If too chunky, add up to a cup of water. This makes about 10 – 1 cup servings. I often double the recipe.
