I added a little Tabasco to give a little more kick
Yum! What a declicious, easy soup! I used 3 cans of broth and added a can of diced tomatoes with jalepenos. The result was a perfect texture and combination of flavors!
This recipe was great and the whole family loved it!
Excellent! I didn't have a jalapeno pepper but it tasted great without it! A definite keeper of a recipe!
