Southwestern Bean Soup Recipe

Southwestern Bean Soup Recipe

When a friend needs a night off from cooking, I throw together this one-pot meal. I deliver it with tortilla chips, shredded cheese and sour cream for garnish. The pepper sauce can be ranged to suit individual tastes, and the broth can be eliminated for a thicker batch. —Jackie Hacker, Seville, Ohio
