I have been making this recipe for years. I add a can of rinsed black beans every now and then to change it up a bit

Simple, healthy, and delicious! The spices can be adjusted to taste and everyone's happy. I used my dutch oven and made a wonderful soup/stew with nice leftovers for lunch the next day. This is a recipe that could easily be adapted for the crockpot or the pressure cooker as well! I will be making this one again.

Thank you!

I first made this in 2004, when it was in my newest TOH magazine. Our family (35 of us back then) took turns fixing the meals on a coast trip. I made this, along with another soup and served it with cornbread. It was so very good--everyone wanted the recipe! I've been making it several times, every winter, since then.
