2 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cups chopped onion
1 teaspoon dried thyme
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 (15.75-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
4 (15-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, chopped
1 pound turkey kielbasa, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, thyme, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add the beans, chiles, and kielbasa. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle each serving with parsley.
