I was hungry for soup and had a little left-over smoked sausage and a good amount of pork tenderloin. I decided to make soup from what I had in the pantry. I needed to go to the grocery so many items were missing. I decided to make a slightly spicy soup that would taste enough like chili to make my DH happy. Voila! A new hearty recipe was born. Add fresh bread, muffins or biscuits and you'll have a full meal.
