ok, fine. I confess. The only thing I am cooking these days are Pioneer Woman recipes. Its not that I am PW snob. Its not that I go to her site to decide what to make for dinner. Its that every time I browse, I am forced to cook something because it looks so dang tasty. Its not really a choice.
And PW does not disappoint. This soup is a bit spicy and I love it. But it does call for some major simmer time that I cut in half due to lack of planning, impatience, and stomach growls. This meal we enjoyed with some friends visiting the training program, Ben and Caryn! Thanks friends for taking a chance with my cooking and for great conversation.
