Recipe by TrinkDawg

This soup is hearty and delicious! The meat just falls apart, and the spicy component is a nice change from traditional beef stews. Even a friend of ours who is a self-proclaimed soup hater liked this! We found this recipe in a Taste of Home Heartwarming Soups magazine. We make this a little ahead of time and let it sit on low for about an hour before eating it so the beef can get a little extra tender!
