I came up with this because i wanted to make enchilada casserole, using the sausage and beans for bulk since i didn't have enough corn tortillas or cheese...but it tasted so good the way it was, i decided to make a soup out of it...and i'm glad i did...the hubby loved it, i'll definitely be making this again!
I served it with flour tortillas browned in a dry frying pan, then rolled. Would be good with quesadillas or cornbread too.

How to Pair Soups and Wine

Kitchen Crew @JustaPinch

Pairing soups and wine can be tricky. Besides there being many types of soup (stews, chowder, broth-based, etc.), soups are liquid and pairing liquid with liquid is strange. In reality,...
