1 bag “15 bean soup” mix
cook according to directions, but use these ingredients instead:
-replace half the water (and optionally all the pork) with pork stock
-replace canned tomatoes with a few shots of Huy-Fong SriRacha sauce (or try tabasco)
-add a whole lime instead of a lemon
-throw in a whole chopped union (instead of just 1 cup)
-Add chili pepper and garlic as instructed, and the contents of the little mix pack
This stuff feeds 14 people (or two bachelors) and costs like a buck. And tastes GREAT.
