Tracy's Mexican Soup

Tracy's Mexican Soup
Here's a somewhat oldie but goodie - I've made this recipe a few times and it's one I go to when I'm looking for flavor, spice and a cure for the common cold.  We've been back from vacation for 4 days but what I didn't mention before is that last Wednesday I started coming down with a cold.  Of course, being on vacation, in the sun and having fun, I really didn't notice it but as soon as we started to come home on the 4 hour plane ride, well then I could tell it was going to hit!  For the last 3 days I haven't been able to taste anything and constantly had the sniffles but today I started to make a turn.  Since I had my taste back, I knew I wanted to make this tonight - it would be exactly what the doctor would order!  Picked up all the ingredients and once home this was done in 30 minutes.

This recipe came from a friend named Tracy (of course).  I made it exactly as she did - no tweaks are needed.  Great flavor and just enough spice/hotness for us.  And by George, I think I am cured - I feel great!
