Cayenne pepper gives a little kick to bowls of this pretty golden soup, a first course that everyone seems to love. It can be made several days ahead to fit a busy schedule, then heated up whenever needed.
Hannah Barringer of Loudon, Tennessee suggests serving this delicious and satisfying recipe with corn chips, cheese, sour cream, and a small salad. “To save time, purchase vegetables that have already been diced,” she adds.
