This is so delicious! We all had a big bowl for lunch with oven baked tortilla strips and a dollop of sour cream for DS. I did add a small can of corn and a can of black beans. I also used a 28 ounce can of tomatoes with the juice as well. A very nice base which lets you add what you have on hand. Thanks so much for sharing. Nick's Mom
