I love the lime in this!

Top Review by AshK5246

This was a very simple soup to throw together and it made a great addition to our grilling last night. The lime really does make this stand out from many of the other Mexican soups I have tried. I didn't change a thing and everything came out great. We will be adding this to our regular rotation. Thank you for posting!
