Looks like it’s time to post again!  It’s been a while but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been in the kitchen! 

I got this recipe from my friend Laura, who got it from her mom.  Laura saw my Smoky Stuffed Peppers and thought I would enjoy this soup, which I did.  Instead of simmering for an hour, I threw all the ingredients in the crock pot before I left for work one morning.  I thought it worked good and according to Laura, the texture was the same as if it was simmered for an hour.  Instead of buying chili sauce, I decided to make my own, which made the soup a bit too sweet.  I would advise going out and buying Heinz Chili Sauce (should be next to the ketchup) instead of finding a recipe for it on-line and substituting that. 

I would definitly make this soup again, and it feezes really well for a quick lunch or supper on these chilly days we’ve been getting lately.
