This is a delicious soup that really does taste like the Southwest! I had to use tomato's and a spoonful of green chilies from a separate can but that worked fine. The seasoning was right on for my tastes. I had it for lunch with some cornbread I had in the freezer. A match made in heaven! It makes in under 30 mins and is a treasure on a cold snowy day.

I enjoyed this very much - it was a little spicy for me, although my boyfriend loved it. I'll probably cut down on the cayenne next time. And I definitely will have it again... Thanks. Shelly
