In a large saucepan or dutch oven, cook the beef, onion and garlic until meat is completely browned. Then drain off any fat.
Add the stock, tomatoes, beans, corn, picante sauce, pasta, green pepper, and seasonings.
Bring to a boil and stir occasionally.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until pasta is tender. Garnish with cheese and tortilla chips.
After the mix comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes. The soup is done when the pasta is tender.
Top with sour cream, cheese or tortilla chips.
