This awesome find came from the "Fix It and Forget It Cookbook" by Good Books. I got to test this recipe before the book was published. My kids love this hearty, tasty, easy soup that's a meal in itself.

Thanks for a great recipe. I took it to a neighborhood chili dinner where each person brought a different recipe. It was a hit and my hubby is eating the last bowl now. I used cannaloni beans, grean chilis (instead of jalapeno)and added a can of cream of chicken to make it a little thicker. What a nice, different soup.

This was wonderful in my crockpot on low for 10 hours. I added 2 tblsp of lime juice to the recipe. I also used a mexican blend cheese to each bowl. My picky family loved it and the leftovers were even better the next day.

I can't believe I've never rated this! I have made this several times, and it's wonderful! I use both jalapenos because the heat tends to cook out so much after several hours. Thank you! (I have the cookbook, and don't think I ever made this one before seeing it on here.)
