Really different from the plain ham and corn soups.

Surprisingly good flavor! I didn't have Caribbean jerk seasoning, so I used Weber's N'Orleans Cajun, which I'm sure changed the flavor completely, but I loved it.

This was a good recipe and well worth it for someone to try. We simply decided we have another similar recipe we enjoyed more.

The refried beans gave the broth a weird texture.

I used less lime than the recipe called for but it was still tooooo much. I could not even taste the Jerk. The sour cream did cut it but it was still JUST okay.
