Flavorful and filling, Michaela Rosenthal's hearty soup is laced with a hint of lime and has a zesty Southwest flair. “It's really a meal in itself,” says the Woodland Hills, California cook. Fresh fruit salsa makes an unusual but perfect topping!
This robust soup is a family favorite, and it's a big hit with my canasta group as well. I top each bowl with a slice of toasted bread and cheese, but you can have fun incorporating other pizza toppings such as cooked sausage.
We have so few bad-weather days in New Mexico that we like to celebrate cold rainy one with bowls of hot soup. My family likes this ham and bean variety alongside green chili corn muffins.

Loaded with ground beef, squash, tomatoes and two kinds of potatoes, this hearty soup makes a great family meal on a busy night. Go ahead and substitute any of the vegetables with those that better suit your tastes.
We have a small asparagus patch, and my husband and I wait eagerly for this tasty vegetable to appear every spring. We're pleased to use our precious harvest in this soup. Lemon and nutmeg give it a surprising spark.
