An old favorite with a Mexican flair. This soup is great for freezing.

A good soup that very filling and easy to make. I like this soup better served with the corn chips then with saltine crackers (my first bowl). I added a 6 ounce can of tomato paste. I may increase the cumin, garlic powder and chili powder the next time I make this. Use a 12 quart soup pot as this makes a LARGE batch of soup. Thank you for sharing.
