Description If you like Tortilla soup, this is the soup for you. It is a wonderful spicy soup. I like to garnish this with sour cream and chopped green onions as well as cheese.

I have tried this recipe and made some changes when I cook it. I leave out the cayenne pepper and I get the regular Ranch Style beans. My family doesn’t like hot, spicy foods. Also I noticed that the carrots do not get cooked enough in the short time it takes to stew. So I substitute a small can of carrots. I garnish with cheese in individual bowls, not the whole pot.
