We're Nebraska Cornhusker football fans, and on the days when the "Big Red" team is playing, I make up a big pot of this soup. The whole family gathers around the television set to eat it while watching the game! I like to prepare dishes that have a Mexican flavor—and there's just a hint of that in this deliciously satisfying soup. —Shelly Korell, Bayard, Nebraska
