Soup for dinner...I sometimes  make a green salad, but this soup is packed with vegetables, so sometimes it's jut soup with a little freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a baguette.
My husband loves to cook and I think he likes the chopping part way more than me.  We love making this soup and storing leftovers in 2 serving containers in the freezer.   We can have an easy and healthy dinner by just defrosting what we need.

I love using Dean & DeLuca Chili Powder Blend.  See it here.

Spicy Bean Soup is so good...find the recipe here.

    handy to have a kitchem mate who likes to chop...it must make the soups taste much better...
