This soup is delicious. I used all canned ingredients,subbed the beans used in the original recipe for pinto beans and added 1/2 lb of ground turkey, was simple and wonderful!
Changed the method slightly by sauteeing in a little olive oil, the carrots, celery and very small finely chopped onion, which I added for flavor. Then added broth and proceeded with recipe as written, using the Italian seasoning instead of the oregano. This is delicious and much needed on this very snowy day. Thanks, Kree.
