I’ve expressed my love for Mexican/Tex-Mex foods before, so it’s no surprise that we really liked this dish. I altered a recipe that I cut off a box many years ago.

Honestly, the soup was so good without it, I doubt I’ll ever add sour cream. (Am I the only one who wakes up in the middle of the night thinking about stupid things like sour cream in soup?)
