This soup came about as a result of a flavor that I enjoy the fajita and I wanted to share that flavor in my soups so I tired it and brought it to work - it was a hit I hope you enjoy it as well!! Feliz Navidad

We enjoyed this a lot. Very easy to put together. I could not find the sazon con azafran seasoning so I used fajita seasoning. I also added some extra broth along with some chicken granules to give it a richer flavor. Could not find the frozen peppers, so used 1/2 of a red, 1/2 yellow and 1/2 green pepper which worked well. Topped this off with a Mexican blend of cheese and tortilla chips. Thanks so much for a wonderful soup.
