I have a serious love affair with all things Tex-Mex. I mean sure, yes, I’m pretty free with my love and devotion when it comes to my favorite foods. I have declared my undying affection for many an excellent recipe. For example, this Browned Butter Fudge, this Perfect Chili Recipe, and my Aunt Beulah’s Saucy Chicken recipe.
Dangit, now I’m hungry. The perils of food blogging.
But this soup? It should win some awards, people. For things like turning soup-haters into lovers, for being magically man-pleasing (why do so many men complain about soup?!), and for being all around AMAZING.
This soup rocks my family’s socks right off. Every last one of us eat it without complaint (no small miracle, I assure you), and it actually is hearty enough to fill us up.
