Recipe by Montana Heart Song
I had leftover enchilada sauce, ground pork and vegies to be cooked. This is the result. It is a hearty good soup. Instead of ground pork, you can use Jones brand Scrapple; ground pork mixed with cornmeal but omit the cornmeal listed in the recipe. I serve with tortilla chips. The next day it is still as delicious. If too thick add a little water.
