  1. In a Dutch oven, combine the first five ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Freeze Option: Reserving tortillas for later, freeze cooled soup in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight.

Serve with additional salsa if desired.

"Very easy soup to throw together, and it received a thumbs up from everyone. I would think it would be better the next day, but I had no leftovers! Definitely worth a try."

"Been making a version of this soup for years. I add a can of Ro-tel or diced tomatoes and 1/2 c. rice plus some chopped onion, garlic ,cumin, chili powder and a dash of oregano to spice it up. It's quick and delicious!"

"Made some small additions, such as a tsp of cumin and thickened with masa flour otherwise all the same fast and simple ingredients. As a bonus our T-Day turkey had been smoked so it was bonus in the flavor department. Definite keeper in the recipe box."
