  • “Very simple, delicious soup!! I loved the bit of bite that it had. I followed the directions to a T and wouldn’t change a thing. I topped it off with a pinch of shredded cheese but skipped the tortilla strips. Thanks so much for posting!”

  • “I can’t believe no one has reviewed this wonderful soup and it has been posted for 8 years. This soup is so easy to make too. Instead of using the blender I cooked all the ingredients that were to go in the blender and then used my hand immersion blender, so there was less to clean up. I did not have green beans so I just addeda little bit of pasta. My 16 year old son came home and ate the entire pot. I also used “Recipe #289198″ for the southwest seasoning. Thank you for posting this great soup recipe.”
