From a Southern Living 1979 cookbook. This is good, hearty fare -- best remembered by the time we had a bachelor neighbor to dinner and he ate about four helpings.

Made this yesterday with some local sausage. It was very good! I also used Del Monte diced tomatoes with mild chilies and the spice level was perfect for us. Topped with a little Mexican Blend 2% cheese and it was a great lunch! Thanks for sharing!!
