Cowboy Soup

My Urban Kitchen, Soups

Yes, another white bean soup!  Cans of white beans are plentiful here in Vienna and they are economical.  I’ve been occupying my couch all day – not feeling well.  Seems the “Grippe Welle” has caught up with me.   I asked my son to make dinner.  He wasn’t too pleased at first.  So, I wrote out a simple recipe for him to follow.  He successfully made us a very good and very tasty soup! And I did not have to cook!


  • 1 800 g can of white beans
  • 2 cans of tomatoes
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 4 Debreziner Wurst or hotdogs sliced
  • 2 large potatoes cubed (don’t need to peel them)
  • olive oil
  • chile powder, salt and pepper to taste
Cut the potatoes into bite size pieces, cover with water and cook until just done.   While the potatoes are cooking, blend the canned tomatoes until smooth, set aside.  Sauté the onion and garlic in olive oil when done add the Debreziner Wurst and cook them until slightly browned.  Add the tomatoes and then the beans.  Once the potatoes are done add them.  Season with chile powder, salt, and pepper.
Makes about 4 generous servings.

    1. It is really good. It is actually Robert’s recipe. He used to cook this up for our kids when they were small and called it “Cowboy Soup”. It’s a hearty man’s soup :) There are lots of variations. We usually make this a lot spicier. You can, if you want, add extra hot
      paprika, or Tabasco Sauce.
