Fast & Easy Dinner: White Bean Soup

Wondering what to make for dinner? How about a tasty vegetarian soup with Mexican influences? Canned beans allow this soup to come together in under 30 minutes. Poblano chilies pack heat, but a dollop of sour cream balances out the spiciness.

Flavored with cumin and lime juice, this soup is best paired with an icy cold beer or a margarita on the rocks. Double the amount in the recipe and you'll have a great meal to serve while entertaining. Purchase store bought chips and a selection of salsas, then invite some friends over and call it a party. To get this wonderful recipe perfect for autumn,

I'm not one for "heat' so I'd probably use a less potent chili or pepper! But this looks delicious!
