Days in the Chicago metro area are getting cooler and cooler with each passing day. This is a comforting soup to ward off the chill, using pantry items.

1, 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup beef broth (freeze remaining for future batches or other soups

1 teaspoon each chili powder, ground cumin, onion powder and garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

Reserve 1/3 cup beans. Put remaining beans with their liquid in a blender or food processor fitted with metal blade. Puree until smooth.

Place bean puree and tomatoes into a medium sauce pan. Stir in remaining ingredients and reserved beans. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring occasional. Lower heat to a simmer and simmer 10 minutes to blend flavors. Serves 4.

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
