This was really tasty and filling! At first, I was going to use Italian-style stewed tomatoes instead of Cajun and mozzarella instead of Monterey Jack, because both ingredients didn't sound Italian to me. However, I decided to stick to the plan. I don't care what kind of vegetable soup you call it, it is delicious! As a matter of fact, I couldn't find Cajun-style stewed tomatoes anywhere, so I just used regular stewed tomatoes and 1 t. of Cajun spice mixture. I will be making this soup again!
