A big hit with the family. It was a little spicy, but my 8 and 10 year olds still gobbled it up. Only one minor change to the recipe - I had chili beans on hand rather than ranch style beans. Also, we garnished with french onion dip (we ran out of sour cream) as well as cheese and black olives. YUM! UPDATE 10/24/2011 - Subbed black beans for the ranch style beans this time and used the store brand of Rotel (a 15 oz can). To this I also added a 28 oz can of petite diced tomatoes. This made the soup a little less spicy for the younger kids but still enough of a "kick" for the adults. We enjoyed our soup with a large dollop of sour cream along with some green onions, cheese, black olives, and crumbled tortilla chips.

I made this last night for this weekend's meal but I just had to taste it first. It was spot on! I didn't use the stewed tomatoes -- we don't like them. Can't wait to eat a big bowl of this on the weekend. Made for PAC Fall 2009. Thanks for this great recipe!
