Directions:
Directions:
Mix all of the ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer for at least 30 minutes. This can also be done in a crock pot and cooked all afternoon. If you would rather a thicker soup, you can dice up a flour tortilla and stir it into the soup. Serve when the tortilla is dissolved.
