    Queen Dragon Mom's Note:

    For authenticity, sub. lard for the olive oil. Garlic and onions have been imported to C.A. since the Spanish. Celery? I don't know. For Basil, Mexican oregano. Beef would be a festival food, so make vegetable stock, instead. Lime, avocado, corn, tomatos, jalapeno, all New World foods. I wasn't sure about this one, but it is great! Wouldn't change a thing. Original poster's coments follow: A wonderfully tasty, quick, low calorie, and filling soup--fit for Montezuma after a hard day at the sacrificial altar. Serve hot to 6 as complete lunch--or as a substantial first course.

      The soup is very filling and tasty with a Tex-Mex attitude. I used 1 can of beef broth and 1 can of vegetable broth for the base. I substituted cilantro for the fresh basil (my fresh basil was NOT so fresh). This recipe went well with Mexican Shrimp Cocktail as an appetizer. If you like Tex Mex, you'll love this!
