A Lazy-day recipe: Soup

Though it's too hot to really make up a soup--a big soup--the changing light is making me hungry for fall/winter foods.  Today I gave in to the urge and assembled a quickie-soup from frozen beef stock, rice, and canned stuff, plus a spare few sausages.

The base: 1 quart frozen beef stock (needed using up anyway.)    Plus maybe 2 cups of water.  To which I added:
28 oz can of Rotel diced tomatoes & green chilis
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can yellow corn, drained
3 small Polish sausages, sliced into rounds
about 1 1/2 cups rice

This produced a colorful soupy mixture of rice, beans, corn, tomatoes, and sausage bits.  Rice dominated.   (I'd originally thought I'd use barley, but I didn't have enough barley left in the jar.   Need to put that on the list.  And anyway, rice cooks faster.)  Filling, exactly suited my autumn mood without heating up the kitchen to slow-cook from dried beans..  One bowl was enough for me.
