A bowlful of this soup is so satisfying, it's hard to believe it's actually good for you, too. I crave it all the time. With lots of filling beans and potatoes, the recipe even hits the spot with meat lovers. —Kristina Krummel, Elkins, Arkansas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 18, 2014

This is a good recipe but I added a few spices too (salt, pepper, garlic powder). Loved the little kick the jalapeno added.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 14, 2014

I doubled the ingredients and added celery, bell peppers, and a sweet potato (just because I had them to use up.) Even with 4 cups of broth, soup needed more so I added a can of diced tomatoes and 1 1/2 cups water. Used Italian seasons for spice and a touch of garlic powder. Also added salt to taste and freshly ground black pepper. Very nice! Will make this again.
