Most people would not think of eating a bowl of hearty stew when it's 100 degrees outside. Nor does a cool, refreshing salad seem like the right choice in the middle of a snowstorm. However, this light Sopa de Lima is just right for any weather. The chicken is satisfying...the broth is light.... and the added tangy flavor of the lime adds zing to just a "regular" chicken soup. Enjoy some tonight whether it's a balmy 80 degrees or a cool 60 degrees, it will be just right.

Beans are a staple in my families house and these ones are slow-cooked with onion and garlic to bring out the rich and hearty flavors. These Pinto Beans are wonderful as a side dish, but can be eaten alone as well. Just top them with some chopped onions and cilantro and you've got yourself a meal.
