Would you serve this? I need a little mefihelp with food advice for an upcoming poker game.

I play in a monthly poker home game, 8-12 people. I am hosting this month and the host provides dinner and beer/wine. The meal is usually home-made, not always, usually fairly simple, not always (last month the host made roast chicken pieces and an olive pasta).
I am thinking of tortilla soup, I have a recipe I have used for years that is very good and the soup gets loaded up with diced tomatoes, avocados, shredded cheese, tortillas, fresh lime, etc.
My question is: Is soup enough? Should there be some side? If so, what sort of side goes with a hearty soup? I have played with this group for 3-4 years now but don't know them outside of the poker game, I'm a worrier and don't want any of them thinking "really, a bowl of soup?"
Maybe this question should have insecurity filter amended to it.
