Meet the Cook: Now that my husband has retired - we have two grown sons - we eat out a lot. If we stay home, though, he asks if we are going to have this chili! I've been making it, with a few ingredients added or changed , most of my married life.

A dear friend brought me some of this soup when I was ill - it really hit the spot. I asked her for the recipe and I've made it several times since, especially when I have leftover turkey to use up. Now I like to take it to friends when they're not feeling well. It's filling and really warms you up on a wintry day!
I remember my mom making this soup; now I make it as often as I can. It's a good way to use up leftover vegetables. Sometimes I add a can of rinsed and drained kidney or garbanzo beans. —Angela Goodman, Kaneohe, Hawaii
