A relatively quick soup that's almost easier than having your favorite Mexican restaurant make it for you! Adjust the heat level to your liking. The garnishes here really take this soup over the top, so no fair skipping!

Directions

Throw everything except the garnishes in your crockpot and let it cook on high for 5-6 hours. Dress with garnishes and give it a squeeze of lime (a must) and you're good to go!

If you are not using a crockpot, sauté the garlic and onion in 2 Tbs. olive oil before adding the remaining ingredients. Simmer for at least an hour so that the flavors mix together.
