This soup was YUMMY! I started by sauteing onion, carrot, garlic & celery in EVOO because we like the added veggies. Once softened, I added the tomatoes, 2tsp poultry seasoning [which includes thyme] and chili powder. Followed with water, beans, 2 chicken thighs & simmered 2hrs. Added the sherry, 1 additional teaspoon of Chili powder & simmered another hour. We don't use bouillon because of the MSG factor so I increased the spices. DEEELICIOUS!!! Thank you!
