I had leftover grilled flat iron steak, so I used this recipe as a base for my soup. Here's what I did. My meat was already cooked, so I browned the pepper (I used Green & red) & onion. I added the garlic (used granuales) I then added the tomatoes, chili powder, & cumin. I left out the fajita seasoning because my meat was already grilled with a smokey grill spice. I added beef broth and I used a frozen corn & black bean fiesta mix. I left out the pintos, spinach, and jalapenos. Everyone loved it.

I made the recipe with the amounts and ingredients as posted. I only changed the prep method. I browned the beef, onion and garlic until done. Then I added all the other ingredients and put it in my 12 quart Nesco (I doubled the batch) and let it cook for 4 hours. The double batch made at least 10 quarts of soup. It was SOOOOOO GOOD. I will definately make this one again. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I also submitted 2 photo's.
