My family loves this soup. Very refreshing and good Tex-Mex flavor. Good served with polenta. Adapted from a Moosewood recipe.

Delicious! Didn't have enough tomato juice so I used one can of diced tomatoes. Incredibly easy and wonderful. Also used mozzarella cheese since I didn't have monterey jack. Still wonderful! Thanks very much.
