I made this soup for the Photo Thread Subject and it was very good. I didn't use green beans simply because I didn't think they were mexican (if that makes any sense. I also added a chopped onion to the pot. I think next time I might add a little extra gound cumin. Thanks for a very good recipe Heather.
