This is always a crowd favorite. Great to make ahead as the flavors just get better with time. I love to serve this with a bunch of topping so everyone can make their own creation! Our favorite toppings are tortilla chips, cheddar cheese, sour cream, avocado, and chopped cilantro. Delicious! xo. —

Well, chili powder it had to be! Soup is real good, I added a pinch of Mexican oregano, as it cooked. Awesome!

What was the alternative ingredient to taco seasoning? Maybe chili powder?
