1 green chili pepper -- chopped, canned
2 cups cabbage -- shredded

Place legumes in a large pot with the water. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 1 hour. Add carrots, celery, onions, chili pepper, tomatoes and seasonings. Cook for an additional hour. Add cabbage and simmer for 30 minutes longer.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
