Darcy's Veggie Chili Soup


The idea of a chili soup is quite appealing, if you like chili, which we do.  We had this last week when the weather was North Pole style.  Going outside was a challenge if you were not bundled up from the tip of your head to your toes.  The wind was galloping to the point that it moved me a foot down the street.  Winter certainly arrived with a full force.

This soup was just right.  It was warm and it was filled with goodies.
