It is a cold day here in Southern California, a brisk 60 degrees! Time for soup. But, to be perfectly honest, every day is a great day for soup.

This comes together rather quickly 1 hour, tops, including cook time. Use your imagination for whatever you want to use as toppings….vegan sour cream, avocado, tortilla strips, fresh cilantro, or all of the above!

An extra added taste is a squeeze of fresh lime juice. YUM!
