Surprisingly Good Refried Bean Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Abbeygurl

When I first made this I didn't think my kids would eat it. They LOVED it and I ended up having to make another batch. Try it with Tostitos Hint of Lime tortilla chips. My kids like to scoop the soup up with the chips! You can also make this very low fat, if you so choose.

This made excellent use of my leftover refried beans! I didn't have a can of Rotel tomatoes, so I threw in a tomato from our garden. I also added some left over taco seasoning and a few drops of tobasco sauce for an extra kick. Very good soup -- will definitely make again!
