- Send along small containers of cheddar and/or montery jack cheese, if desired, for garnish. This soup goes great with tortilla chips!
I made this for my first OAMC session and my daughter loved it. My son who hates most mexican dishes also loved it and said he'd eat it again. I sent it to work with my husband and he said it was good too. I don't particularly care for corn or mushrooms in anything but I thought it had an interesting flavor and wouldn't mind eating it again.
Very good soup. My son always asks for me to make it so he can take in his school lunch. Thanks for a great recipe!!
Excellent dinner...I froze it and reheated in the crock pot. the family loved it
