“Thought I would post this recipe. It's a combination of a couple recipes I know plus some additions I thought would "improve" it. This soup is great for a chilly night's dinner. It has just enough chipotle to provide some zing. Of course, feel free to increase or decrease according to your taste This makes enough for 2 hungry people or 4 for a first course.”
