  • So it was really tasty, but the recipe instructions itself needs help. They never tell you about red pepper in the ingredient list and they never tell you when to add the beans as you are putting everything together. It was so good though. I will definitely be making it again. - 8/26/08

  • Even if I wasn't watching my calories this would be one of the best soup/stews I've had in a long time. It's both hearty and rich. We will make it again, and again, and again. - 1/6/08
