Method: 

Simmer chicken sausages in water for 15 minutes. Drain and chop. Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven or soup pot. Add sausages, onion, garlic, bell pepper, crushed red pepper, cumin and salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables soften, 8 to 10 minutes. Add broth and beans. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes. Eat as is or serve over whole-wheat couscous or brown rice. Leftover soup will thicken into a stew-like consistency.
