Another of Marjorie Druker's wonderful combinations from the New England Soup Factory in Boston. The chili powder, cumin, and Tabasco add a real kick to this colorful combo. Takes a while to make, but not difficult. If you prefer more of a soup, add more V-8 and adjust spices to taste. (If you forget to soak the beans overnight, cover with water, bring to a boil for 2 min, turn off heat, cover and let stand 1 hr).
