  1. 1 cup dried pinto beans, or 2 cans (15 oz. each) cooked pintos, drained
    2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
    1 rib celery, sliced
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 bay leaf
    1 can (15 oz.) reduced-sodium, fat-free beef broth
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


    1. If using canned beans, ignore this step. If using dried beans, place in small Dutch casserole. Add 3 cups cold water. Cover and bring to a boil.
    2. Remove from heat and soak 1 hour.
    3. Drain well.
    4. In medium pan mix together beans, tomatoes, celery, onion, bay leaf and broth.
    5. Cover and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are quite soft, 60 to 75 minutes for dried beans, 20 minutes for canned.
    6. Let hot soup sit, uncovered, 20 minutes.
    7. Remove bay leaf. Pureé half the soup in blender. Recombine with remaining soup.
    8. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) was founded on a simple but radical idea: everyday choices can reduce our chances of getting cancer. AICR was the first organization to focus research on the link between diet and cancer and translate the results into practical information for the public. AICR embraced the mission of changing lives to save lives.
