      Yummy, yummy. It's Mexican minestrone! Of course I fiddled with it, adding some beans and a few tomatillos and chopped celery, a carrot or two, because I had all that and it was 'clean out the 'fridge day.' This was a real hit with Mr. Wonderful and the house smelled terrific while it simmered in the slow cooker. Note to those shy about the Liquid Smoke: once the vegetables cook and the flavors meld, it's subtle and adds a nice element to the soup. This one 'stays in the rotation' ---Thanks for posting!

      My family loved this soup! I was a bit afraid of 1 teaspoon liquid smoke, so I used only 1/2 instead. It has a wonderful flavor. I WILL make this again.
