    Southwestern Chickpea

    Love this soup & many others as well. Had this for supper this evening but had none of the sausages that you suggested so used Jimmy Dean Original bulk. It was fabulous, just a real winner. Wanted to share that tip with you since we really love your products and the quality that is your signature trademark!!!! Thanks, Colleen

    Thick and Hearty Soup

    Posted by Patty A. on Mar 18th 2024

    I just purchased Jonny’s Favorite Southwestern Stew mix at my new local and beautiful Ace Hardware in Pinehurst NC and made it last night. It was terrific, just what my husband wants in a soup, thick and hearty. I used only a half pound of Hot Italian sausage and the soup was so flavorful. A friend recommended the product to me and I’ll recommend it to all my other friends!

    Jonny's Favorite Southwester Chickpea Soup

    This was so good! I just ordered 15 of your soup mixes to try. I was kind of hestitant at first on this one, because i don't care for canned garbanzo beans (chickpeas). However, this doesn't taste anything like the canned ones. Such good flavor/spices in this mix. I seasoned the chicken with sweet smoked Spanish paprika and a bit of turmeric, then added roasted garlic. I used Ro-Tel tomatoes. This was so good and filling. I will definitely buy it again. Still making my way through the other soups I purchased.

    I just ordered more soup, but also just made the chickpea soup, which was excellent. I turned my sister in law on to it, and will keep spreading the word.

    So good

    We’ve been enjoying Anderson House soups this month! Super easy to shop and plan for and we’ve been making 1-2 a week and then having leftovers the next day. I can see why this is "Jonny's Favorite" - Thank you!
