The orginal soup was my Mothers' recipe. She always said the secret to her soup was to always add a teaspoon of chili powder to wake it all up.I have Changed it a bit through the years but this is always the soup I make when I have leftover liquid , Vegetables and Roast from making a roast in the crock-pot.
