I got this recipe from Tony and Patti Manna. It makes a good amount of soupl This recipe is very simple to throw together with pantry ingredients. I have changed almost every ingredient in the recipe at one time or another and it always turns out great! For the beans I use any combo of pinto beans, chili beans, black beans, etc or I have also used 3 cans of the same kind of beans. This is a very forgiving recipe.
