This recipe is a great starter recipe showing all the right ingredients for a wonderful soup. The right addition of spices would make this perfect. I used a large jalapeño and added in salt and pepper but it needed something more to spice it up. I am considering the next time I make it to add in some taco seasoning. Some great toppings in addition to the sour cream and tortilla chips may include shredded cheddar cheese, sliced green onion, chopped tomato & a slice of avocado.
