I love sharing our humble and hearty soup made with beef, cabbage and green chilies. A blast of cilantro gives it a sunshiny finish. —Michelle Beal, Powell, Tennessee

"This is a good start to what could be a great recipe. The problem is there aren't enough spices or flavor in the dish. When I make any type of cabbage, I season it very well while cooking. This recipe only calls for onion while it is cooking. I would recommend layering flavors on the cabbage, then adding your beef, with the additional flavors."
