This is my old stand-by and I usually serve it along with quesadillas or chicken nachos, homemade salsa, guacamole, and tortilla chips. Ole!!

We really enjoyed this soup! Served it with quesadillas as you recommended. I didn't have veggie stock so I subbed an onion soup mix packet and a couple beef bullion cubes. I used a heaping tsp of dried cillantro, and didn't use the rotel, but used some plain chopped tomatoes...all just to fit what I had on hand. Also, I cooked for 6 hrs on high. Dinner was great and so was lunch today. thanks!
