Soup's On - Spicy Mexican Style

Spicy Mexican Soup
This week I had a craving for some soup - something brothy, not creamy, a little spice, some veggies and low-cal.  Spicy Mexican Soup, was a breeze to make and on the table in no time - perfect after a long work day, you are hungry and want to eat fast!  This is definitely going on my must make again list.  Mr. John enjoyed it and for a soup he gave it 4.5 stars (probably because it had protein!)
