I was looking for something easy & quick after a long day at work. This is it! Full of flavour and easy. I like chilli so next time I'm going to add a tad. A good one to play with flavours.

My son and I both enjoyed although I only put in 1 cup of water but 2 teaspoons stock and did not puree as we prefer chunky soups.
