“This is another clean the fridge recipe - it sounded weird as I was making it but it was so tasty that I decided to post the recipe. It is an easy canned soup recipe. I like spicy so I used a hot, smoked Portuguese linguica sausage and lots of jalapeños. Use 2 fresh, finely chopped jalapeños in lieu of the canned that I put in the recipe. I actually used Mama Africa's Pickled Jalapeños. For me this recipe is medium hot, so add or take away some of the peppers to suit your taste. I used macaroni but noodles, penne or any pasta will do.”
