1/2 teaspoon salt

Brown the sausage in a 3- to 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat for about 6 minutes, breaking it up with a fork as it cooks. Drain the fat but leave the sausage in the pan.

Stir in the broth, tomatoes and their juice, salt, pepper and oregano. Bring to a boil and stir in the rice and beans. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked. Serve hot.
