  1. Add the olive oil, diced onion, fresh garlic, and green chiles to a large pot or dutch oven on the stove over medium heat. Sauté for a few minutes until soft.  
  2. Next add the ground beef, taco seasoning, chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder.  Add salt and pepper.  Sauté until the beef is browned.
  3. Then add the diced tomatoes, black beans, and chicken broth.  Combine.
  4. Bring the soup to a boil.  Cover the large soup pot and let simmer for 10 minutes.  Then remove the lid, and let simmer for 10 minutes uncovered.
  5. Turn the heat to low, or even off, and add in the cream cheese.  Stir for a few minutes until the cream cheese is fully melted into the soup and the broth becomes creamy.  I find cutting the block of cream cheese into smaller chunks to be helpful in melting.
  6. Add any additional seasonings needed and salt and pepper to taste at this point.
  7. Serve with lime juice, cheddar cheese, and tortilla chips on top.  Enjoy!
