  • For the tomatoes, Roma tomatoes are best as they are firm and less juicy than other varieties.
  • When selecting jalapeno peppers, choose ones that are bright green to ensure they are not overly ripe.

  • Substitute beef broth for the tomato bouillon granules. This substitution will provide a richer, more intense flavor to the soup.
  • Substitute black beans for the pinto beans. This substitution is great for those who prefer a milder flavor, as black beans are less flavorful than pinto beans.
