We first sampled this chili-like soup at a church dinner. It's a warming dish on a cold day. And since it uses packaged seasonings and several cans of vegetables, it's a simple taco soup to prepare. —Glenda Taylor, Sand Springs, Oklahoma
This chili, loaded with white beans and cubes of pork, has plenty of bite. But if it’s not spicy enough for you, top it with shredded jalapeno jack cheese and finely diced onions. —Larry Laatsch, Saginaw, Michigan
A friend gave me the recipe for this chunky vegetable soup, which I've been making for years. Recently, I changed the ingredients to give it some southwestern flair--and my husband liked it even better.

"You wouldn't guess that this quick-and-easy soup is low in fat," relates Becky Christman of Bridgeton, Missouri. "Since my husband loves spicy foods, I sometimes use medium or hot salsa in this recipe for extra zip."
This spicy soup is one of my husband’s favorites. It’s quick to make but tastes like it simmered all day. What a great way to use up the last tortilla chips in the bag! —Linda Lashley, Redgranite, Wisconsin
