  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) great northern beans, undrained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) diced seasoned tomatoes

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large soup pan, heat oil. Add onion and cook until translucent. If adding meat, sausage, or chicken, add it at this point. Cook until lightly brown. Add garlic and cook 1 minute.

Add black beans, great northern beans, tomatoes, 3 cups of broth, pumpkin, chili powder, cumin, and cinnamon. Stir to mix. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 - 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
