    this was really good, hubby loved it. I'm not a lover of a lot of spicy so I didn't eat much but the flavor was very good. Only change I made was I used seafood stock instead of vegetable, as that's what I had. If you love spicy, you'll love this soup

    Amazing, saw this in the magazine and knew it would be a knock out! Good enough for company with some cheddar jalapeño cornbread :)

    Absolutely wonderful! We made this a few weeks ago and can't wait to make it again. It was a very hearty soup, more like a stew in that there was not much broth.

    A delicious soup to spice you up on a cold winter night. These flavors are a departure from my usual pantry staples, but I will definitely be making it again. It's zippy, flavorful, and delicious with a side of corn bread. I highly recommend this recipe.
