I found this recipe in a book my Grandmother gave me, compiled by Ladies Auxiliary of the Medina Lake Volunteer Fire Department, 1986. If you prefer a milder soup and not so spicy, add plain tomatoes not Rotel. The spice amounts are a guideline-adjust to your taste. This recipe is easy to make your own-consider adding kernel corn, bell pepper, celery, hominy, peas, carrots, squash or even cooked chorizo, ground beef, ham, or chicken. Also, try cheddar or monterrey jack cheese. Delicious served with cornbread-try Recipe #317966. Enjoy!
