This was fabulous. I left out the Lima beans only because my husband is not a fan. I did throw all in crock pot on high for four hours. I served with pumpkin corn bread from Trader Joes.

I love this soup. It is hearty, satisfying, and quick. I used all pinto beans and whole kernal corn. So good with cornbread!

This is sooo delicious with a dollop of sour cream. Instead of lima beans, I use 2 cans of kidney beans.
