Great Soup for tomorrow’s Baylor football game. But you can only use the recipe if you are cheering for Baylor. It is their last game in Floyd Casey Stadium. Sic ’em Bears!
You can throw this together in less than 15 minutes. I will include substitutions because we are iced in in Dallas this weekend. Love it!!!! But I didn’t have any green chills so I am throwing in some Rotel and some Green Chili salsa that I had on hand. So many flavors going on in this soup, no one will notice a substitution. I almost always double this recipe. It keeps forever and is great for lunches all week. I am usually sick of it by the time it is gone! But it is soooooo good.
Serve with Black Bean Salsa and chips, guacamole and Sopapilla Cheesecake for desert.
