Spicy Pinto Bean Soup
I LOVE soup! Soup is easy to put together and a "hands off" dish. We can get cold here in TX so I'm looking forward to trying a variety of soups to help me warm up :).
The Spicy Pinto Bean Soup on page 161 is a quick soup to put together. Depending on if you're using dry or canned beans your cooking time will vary.
I really like the flavors of this soup. The chilpolte chile in adobo is what adds the punch to the soup. You can add more or less depending on your palate. I did not feel that the base spices needed adjustment.
I forgot the cilantro but that is just for the garnish so that turned out to be no biggie. Add crackers and nom!
