      This is fantastic! I was looking for a vegee side dish to serve with chicken burritos when I found this. I tried it and my whole family (including 4-year old daughter) just loves it. I cut the chili powder down to 1/2 tsp. because the Ro-Tel tomatoes and salsa add quite a bit of spice (and I only had about 1/2 tsp). It was perfect. I was going to freeze the leftovers but we ate it up too fast!

      we loved this easy-to-make soup which is also very adaptable. Instead of the canned tomatoes (which I swore I had but didn't) I used 1 15 oz can of tomato sauce and 1 can of tomato juice. I also added 2 bouillion cubes to 1 can of beef broth and 1 can of water. I used a bit less chili powder than specified as I was worried this would be too hot -- not in the slightest - it was just perfect. The salsa I used was mild. Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having often!
