I really like the way mashing some of the beans gives the soup a thicker texture. This freezes VERY well, just leave out the cheese.Let it thaw in the fridge, then microwave to heat. Add a Cheese and Herb Corn muffin #22536, for a wonderful under 400 calorie lunch.
This savory soup would really hit the spot on a rainy day. Serve it with some fresh bread and cheese! It is a quick, simple recipe from Taste of Home’s special 2005 holiday collection. This makes a lot, perfect for a big get-together, and I think it would freeze well.
This is an awesome, filling soup from Taste of Home's Quick Cooking magazine a few years back. You can dress it up for company or serve it simple any time. The odd combination of ingredients is what caught my eye the first time. I've modified the original recipe to thin the soup a little and stretch it out more. Freezes well.
