Easy, quick, delicious and heart-warming soup/stew. The original recipe makes a big pot of soup, but you can easily double for a big crowd. Swap around the beans, or use chicken instead of beef for a change. You can feed a big crowd inexpensively, and everybody loves this recipe! The “secret” ingredient is the dry ranch dressing. ENJOY!!!
