Then, using a ladle, place the soup into a bowl, your next step is garnishing.

Choose a garnish for the soup such as, additional shredded cheese and/or a dollop of sour cream and top with a sprinkling of fresh cilantro. ( If you do not have fresh cilantro, you can top with just the cheese.) Of course, all are optional.
