Recipe by jlikewhateverhmm

This is one of our favorite recipes. There was a deli that made this and I got the recipe indirectly from the owner. My kids love it and is very easy to make. I'm sure you'll love it, too. Everyone that I have shared this with makes it all the time!

Wow! What a great soup! My husband doesn't like onions so I mulched them in my food processor with the green chilis. It still added wonderful flavor and he didn't know it was in there. He loved it and had two servings! We all loved this soup!! Thanks for a great recipe!! YUMMM!!
