This is fantastic. It's so easy to put together, even if this is something you pcijed from the archives like I did and then you needed to find the fajita recipe to find out how to make the chicken. I'll make this again for sure.

Great soup, but what were the "leftover beans from Tuesday?" Please write what recipe it refers back to (the date) so I know whether the beans were seasoned or not.
