Author Notes

We love tex-mex food--and this soup is a good example. It's easy to make, works well with leftovers, and always pleases. It's great meal for a cold or wet night, reheats well, and works equally well when boiled down as a stew or kept as a soup. I found it originally on a website (What a crock, and have tweaked it several times. —ketherian
