Absolutely loved this soup! I used the stove-top method, cooking for about 1 hour, and I did not use the optional olives. This was hearty, flavorful and just spicy enough. The chips, cheese, sour cream and jalapenos really gave it that extra something - just like a taco in a bowl! Thanks for sharing this easy and yummy recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2008

I'm adjusting to cooking for one, even when I only cooked for two, i made enough for an army. I live with my three cats [[i know, you're thinking crazy cat lady]] I love to cook for parties; appetizers, drinks, sweets...cooking for people makes me so much happier than just cooking for myself. Sundays are my all day cook-a-thons. Nothing beats a lazy Sunday, spent making an all day dish and watching football [[I'm torn between Packers and Jets, but I'm leaning toward the latter]] <br> <br>I'm trying to improve my baking skills [[or lackthereof]] Now that I'm on my own, with nothing but time to fill, I'm excited to try my hand at cakes && cookies && pies. <br> <br>I've also recently decided to cut meat out of my diet, so I'm on the lookout for declicious, easy vegetarian//vegan recipes. It really is amazing how once you stop focusing on meat in a meal, your eyes sort of open up for so many possibilities. I love it. <br> <br> <br>I'm a real simple lady.
