      Wonderful soup. It was a hit with my 88 year old FIL. I did cut back on the spices for him a bit, but added a pince of chipotle chili to my own bowl. I added some celery & frozen corn, frozen black beans, some chicken broth, yellow & orange peppers as that was what I had, and then realized I was out of diced tomatoes so used a bit of V8 juice. I didn't puree any of it to thicken at the end as you can tell by the pictures. Leftovers are packaged and frozen for future lunches. Thanks for posting this recipe ratherbeswimmin, it has gone into my file of make again soups.

      My favorite BBS recipe! Very light. I make it in a pot to simmer on the stove and it still tastes delicious!

      I found this recipe in a veggie slow cooker book I have and made several changes (omitted carrot, bay leaves and thyme, and added extra cumin and minced jalapeno). Cooked it on high for 4 hours in my crockpot, and it was still good! I also added 3 cups of cooked seasoned rice with peas toward the end of cooking for a heartier meal, and garnished with chopped cilantro. I love that I can vary the veggies based on what I have in my fridge. Next time I may try adding zucchini, celery, spinach, or corn.
