    Made this last week and it was seriously amazing!! My whole family loved it! I accidentally doubled the chili powder and my kids still ate it even though it was a little spicy for them. This recipe is a definite keeper! I know it s getting warmer outside and you likely aren t craving soup as often. But I love soup year-round, so can we just pretend it s a little rainy outside and we re cuddling up on the couch with this bowl of goodness watching Netflix?
