This soup is excellent and great for a "crowd"! In all fairness, this recipe is published in "Food for Thought", by The Junior League of Birmingham Alabama, which has a copyright of 1995.

Very easy to make. I leave out the Rotel tomatoes and the black beans and use kidney beans in their place, which adds color too. As white onions can worsen arthritis, I only use yellow onions; the stronger the onion the sweeter it is after cooking. I serve this with a heaping spoonful of sour cream, a generous sprinkle of grated aged cheddar and a big fist full of Fritos on top. The longer you keep this, the more robust the flavor becomes. (Save up to a week). It freezes VERY WELL. It truly is a crowd pleaser and kids love it. One of the best all around fall and winter recipes I have in my recipe box.
