Don't be scared by the amount of Tabasco sauce. This soup is hot, but not insanely so.

I did add the beef to this, and I'm so glad I did. I think it really added to the soup. This was a little "tomatoey" for me, next time I'll add some black beans I think. I used corn tortillas. I used a really large jalapeno, and the wasn't too hot for me. Thanks for sharing!
