I substituted black beans for green beans and used ham-flavored stock, which I buy granulated. I used minced garlic instead of garlic salt. Otherwise true to the recipe, I put everything in the crockpot raw, and cooked it on high for 6 hours. The vegetables maintained color, so the soup tastes as good as it looks. Thank you! Good stuff!
Mmmm!!! this is a very good soup, I have a fantastic chopper that chops every thing so quick that I had it on the stove top in no time. I liked the chilli in it I also used fresh spinach as I had it in my fridge. I think it would be great for the crock pot also, maybe next time as I was in a hurry for it today. Made for PAC Spring 2010 thank's for posting.
I made this for our dinner last night and it was delicious ~ I didn't even miss the fact that it didn't have any meat in it. I made as written except I used fresh spinach ~ it was spicy good! I also made it in my crock pot so it was super easy. Thanks for posting ~ made for Spring PAC 2010!
Add a little sour cream and its delicious!
