½ cup Fischer & Wieser The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce®
Chicken stock to cover beans
8 ounces sausage links, sliced
½ cup minced cilantro

Fry bacon in soup pot over medium heat and save drippings.  Sauté onions and garlic in drippings until onions are wilted and transparent, about 15 minutes.  Add beans, bacon and remaining ingredients except sliced sausage and cilantro.  Stir to blend well.  Bring beans to full boil; lower heat and simmer 2 hours, or until beans are tender.  Skim off fat.
