"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."
