I'm not sure where I got this recipe (probably from a magazine), but it was in my "to try" binder and I made it tonight - husband and I LOVED it and each had 2 bowls. We served it with corn bread on the side. It has a kick in it from the chili powder...very delicious! Enjoy!

This was very good - my husband loved it! I enjoyed it, as well, but I felt that a little something was missing...perhaps it was just not quite spicy enough for me (I like my food really spicy :-), so I will try and spice it up a bit next time. However, it was very tasty and easy to make, just as written, with easy to follow recipe steps. This is a nice soup to serve, especially once the weather gets cool...filling, tasty, and satisfying!
