We have delivered a taste of Mexico in a soup! And we bet you won't be disappointed. Top with plenty of cheese and maybe a dollop of sour cream and serve with toasted bread or corn chips for dipping. This recipe is all about no fuss prep, and letting the slow cooker take care of the rest. Make extra and freeze the leftovers or have for a quick and easy lunch the following day.
