I made this recipe, with a bunch of extras, and really enjoyed it! i replace the water with vegi stock, the pintos with kidney beans (all i had), the jalepenos with some red pepper flakes (again all i had), and it came out wonderful! the simmering time really makes the difference. sorry i changed so much, but i was too lazy to go out and get those extra ingredients. this was a wonderful lunch/dinner!! i feel i can still rate this, because the base idea was a very tasty one, thank you!

Excellent, Tish! This was so easy, and the flavors blend nicely. I used pickled jalapenos because I didn't have fresh, and chopped up the tomatoes (only because I don't like big chunks.) I thought of adding more spices because this recipe looked so simple, but I'm glad I didn't...it's perfect.

Really quick and simple soup, with such a good flavor! I used chicken broth instead of water and cilantro instead of parsley. Thanks for sharing!
