Although this delicious soup tastes like it simmered all day, it only takes 30 minutes to make.

"Excellent soup. I wish I had had avocado and lime to serve with it. It was easy to put together and ready to serve in no time at all. The longer it simmered, the better it tasted. It's now added to my go-to menu. "

I have made this soup about 6 times now... I get at least one request a month for it. I will admit to saying 'it's a family receipe...' It's that good!!! Avocado is a must with this soup.
