My hubby came up with this recipe. We used to buy soup that was called "Hobo Stew" when we were first married. A few years ago, I was lamenting that we haven't seen it in stores for ages. Hubby quickly came up with this concoction. You can alter the flavor by using smaller cans of soup; i.e., if you want less bean flavor, use a small can of bean soup. If you like more chili flavor, use 2 cans of chili. Make it your own!
