I make a Southwest vegetable soup almost exactly like this, except that it calls for chicken broth and kidney beans. It's actually a copycat of Chili's Southwest Vegetable soup, and I think it is a dead-on ringer. We enjoy it very much. I usually add a little more chilli powder because I like a little kick! Great recipe.

This is a very simple soup to make. You'll very rarely hear me say this, but I like the fact that most of the work is done by opening cans. :o) It was a tad bland for our tastes because we really like spicy foods so I just added a tiny bit of jalapeno powder. One notable change was I didn't have ranch style beans so I used black beans. Other than that, I changed nothing. As a garnish, I added some green onions, shredded pepperjack cheese and a few crushed tortilla chips. Thanks for posting this recipe, it was yummy.

This is a great soup! I made it as a main dish. I left out the corn and used yellow squash instead, just to have something yellow in it.
