a hearty soup(i might even qualify it more as a stew) great for filling bellies on a cold day. Great for stretching a dollar!

Top Review by Milkmans Daughter

This is a wonderful soup, has a vegetable chili feel to it. My MIL gave this recipe to me years ago..it's great for family gatherings or pot lucks! You can cut it in half and it works great for a family of 4. I've also used Ranch Style beans in place of the chili beans. Thanks for posting...it will remind me to make this when something quick is needed.
