How to Make End of the Month Soup


  1. Southwest veggies are black beans, onions, corn, red and green peppers. I used a whole bag and a half bag frozen lima beans.
  2. Add spuds, rice, chestnuts, peas, seasonings, tomatoes, and sauce. Add the chicken if you have it and cover with water. Cover and bring to boil.
  3. Once it's boiling, turn to low and let cook all day. Stir if you can once in a while then wait for the house to be filled with wondrous aromas!!
