New Orleans Bean Soup

I have no idea why this is called New Orleans Bean Soup, and I don't remember where I got the recipe, but it is a winner.  Hearty and you can double or even tripple the recipe very easily.  I had made a big pot of beans last week and had some left-over. I also had about 3 cups of turkey meat left-over from Thanksgiving. I took it out of the freezer, added the onion, beans, bell pepper, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Yum!

Printable Recipe:

1 chicken
1 - 1pound can tomatoes
2 cups uncooked pinto beans
1 tablespoon salt
1 onion - quartered
1 large bell pepper
1 lemon
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Soak the bean overnight in a large pot of hot water to cut the cooking time.
In a large add 2-quarts of water along with the whole chicken, onions, and beans.  When the beans are tender add salt, green peppers, tomatoes, lemon, garlic powder, and pepper.  Simmer 40 minutes.
