My husband & I really LOVED this soup! It's chunky and hearty a very satifying. We did top it with avacado which cooled the "heat" and added one can of chicken broth because we didn't think there was enough liquid, but all the flavors were GREAT. We were down to our last spoonful when we realized we'd forgotten the sour cream and cilantro - they would have been a good addition, but not necessary. We'll definitly make this again!

Holy Hot Sauce Batman!! That was good soup. My husband said that's definitely a repeater. I added one more can of beans (pinto) and it I had put in more than one chili pepper I would have had to call 911, but then I am a wimp with hot seasonings. My husband loved it hot. Another of your recipes that can be used on the South Beach Diet--thanks. Carole in Orlando
