Red Bean Soup

6 cans small red beans ( I get these at Walmart)
1 1/2 quarts chicken broth
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup oil
3 bay leaves
3/4 green bell pepper, chopped finely
3 celery stalks, chopped finely
1 med onion, chopped finely
1 bunch green onions, chopped tops only
1 dash hot sauce ( I use Louisiana hot sauce)
2 tsp Tony Chachere's creole seasoning

In large stock pot saute the onions and celery in the oil till clear then add the bell peppers and garlic till browned. Add the remaining ingredients with the exception of the green onions and simmer for 1/2 hour. Using a potato masher smash some of the beans and cook an additional 20 min or until creamy. Stir in the green onion and serve over rice.
