This is a really easy soup that goes together quick. You can add heat by using a Bloody Mary mix with habanero in it. This freezes well if you use a sturdy pasta.

I LOVE this soup! It was absolutely delicious! I used frozen corn instead of canned, and added turkey sausage- the link kind, cut up and cooked before adding to soup). I'm not a huge fan of ground meat in soup, so I think that next time I will just use the turkey sausage! I also used brown rice pasta shells since I no longer live in Texas- the texas pasta isn't readily available to me!

Awesome soup!!! Easy to make and really tasty. I used half and half hamburger and sausage. Mmmmmm.

This was easy to throw together and had just the right amount of spice. I really enjoyed the combination - a little different, but not too different to be comforting. Also tastes great as leftovers. Since I'm not from Texas, I used ziti. ;)
