Ground beef, link sausage, cumin, chilies, and chili powder give this hearty soup its Southwest flavor. This dish is quick, easy, and tastes best when it simmers all day. Bake some Mexican cornbread, toss a simple green salad, and you have a great meal.
This recipe is from my Grandmother's cookbook she made to pass to all her grandchildren. They come out very, very crisp with a wonderful dill flavor. The red pepper flakes give them a nice punch. They are much better than the recipes that call for cooking the beans first.
