Hi, Made this soup Sunday. It was delicious! Few things I did different....didn't use pinto beans, I used black-eyed peas. I had a huge pregnant moment and bought the wrong beans. 2nd - didn't add the green bell pepper because, frankly, I dislike green bell peppers.

warning: this makes a ton of soup! Hubby and I ate it on Sunday for supper, then we both had it for lunch on Monday, and I had it again Wednesday. There is still a good size meal in the freezer.
