I ran this through Master Cook to get calories and such. This is higher on calories, but it is full of healthy stuff so it would be pretty filling! She says it makes 6 servings. If you do it as 6-servings, the calorie count is 444 per serving and 10g Fat (19.9% calories from fat); 34g Protein; 56g Carbohydrate; 11g Dietary Fiber; 48mg Cholesterol; 1629mg Sodium. Exchanges: 3 Grain(Starch); 3 Lean Meat; 1 1/2 Vegetable; 1 Fat. If you made the portion size smaller and ate this in addition to something, you need to watch it! But this seems pretty hearty and delicious!

Additionally, I’m not a huge cumin fan so I wanted a way to make a southwestern style soup or chowder without the typical seasonings…
