It’s best if you add them 5 minutes before the soup is done in the crockpot if you do want them firm. If you feel like you need some extra spice to give it even more of a kick, add in jalapenos with the ingredients.

You can also add in green and red pepper too! Lastly, if you feel like you need more of a brothy feel to this soup, just add more broth. It’s still just as good!
