I just made this soup and it's a little more spicy than I expected. It has good flavor, I just would probably use some bean other than the ranch bean, or do diced tomatoes rather than the rotel. For people that love soup with a kick, this is perfect.

so its not gourmet- but i thought it was quite yummy, and oh how easy! i ended up using italian wedding soup, 1 can black beans, one can pork and beans, and garlic tomatoes. i also added a bit of cumin. i thought it was quite tasty for a change from casserole style quick recipes, especially goes well with the cornbread muffins i made. thanks for a keeper!
