We add an extra jalepeno -- this is one of our favorite soups! Any time someone in our family has a cold or just wants comfort this is on the menu.
THIS SOUP IS JUST WONDERFUL... I DID CHANGE ONE THING, INSTEAD OF USING CHICKEN STOCK I USE BEEF STOCK. IT ADDS JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF RICHNESS TO THE RECIPE.
Not my favorite, my soup came out very thin. I used crushed tomato from a can, that could have been the problem.
I made this soup while I was waiting for my husband to finish a dental appointment. I followed the recipe exactly. Because we know everybody at the office, I took a little bowl for them to try. Big mistake! I ended up driving home to get the rest of the soup and our whole dental office had it for lunch. Then I made another pot the same afternoon for us. The second time I used canned tomatoes and a 4-oz. can of diced green chilies instead of jalepeno and it was just as good. This soup is delicious and easy to make. You can't go wrong with this one!
