This recipe is really quick and easy, and the refried beans give a nice thick texture. I love the ease and the taste of this recipe. This recipe came from Southwest Seasons Cookbook.

Quite good! I didn't use the bacon but I did brown up some ground round (drained & rinsed) to add to it. It doesn't make very much so if company is coming you need to at least double this. I also added a some hot sauce as we like a bit of a bite! Overall, it is a quick and tasty soup.
