This soup is great. I made it tonight and just put the leftovers in the fridge.

I think the beef broth is the ingredient that sets it apart. It’s not typical; it does not have a “taco-y” taste. Even though none of the ingredients were “taco-y”, for some reason that taste is what my tastebuds were prepared for. :)

This soup recipe is really scrumptious and is going into my “keepers” file.

Made this tonight for my boyfriend and I, and shared some with my sick neighbor. We all agreed that it was delicious. I used plain tortilla chips and cheddar cheese as a garnish. I will make this again.
