  3. Reduce heat and simmer 5-7 minutes longer.
  4. Remove about half of the mixture and place in a blender and puree, returned pureed soup to the pot (or if you have an immersion blender, use it in the pot for the entire batch).
  5. Serve hot with chopped tomatoes and a few more sprigs of cilantro.

This was a quick fix for my chili craving. I subbed rinsed chili style tomatoes for the roma, 1 tps. taco seasoning for the sazon goya and added a 1/2 teaspoon of cumin. Great recipe!
