In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sear sausage on both sides -2-3 minutes per side. Transfer sausage to plate. Add carrots and onions to skillet, cook until softened - about 4 minutes - add garlic & Alchemy Southwest Blend and saute another minute. Add beans and broth - bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and add sausage back to skillet. Simmer for another 10 minutes until carrots are tender.
