A easy to make, tasty soup from the Junior League Celebration cookbook. I added this recipe with hopes of trying it someday. Finally had a chance to tonight. This is quick and easy to make and is very good. If you have fresh cilantro, sprinkle some on when you serve to make it even better.

I made this to take to a chili supper and everyone enjoyed it. Even though there were 4 other types of chili, this one was finished off. And it was easy to make. Thanks!

My husband loves this soup. I usually use leftover chicken from a store purchased roasted chicken for extra flavor. Yum.
