This is a hearty soup/stew that is great to make on a chilly day. We usually have it for lunch, but with the addition of a simple salad (such as one consisting of letture, red onion, yellow bell pepper and topped with a basic vinaigrette), cornbread and a caramel flan for dessert, it would make a delicious dinner meal as well.
