This is one of my favorite easy meals. For a heartier soup, you could think of adding potatoes and carrots or other vegetables!

Very easy to make, even for a soup rookie. Very tasty and the spice is not overpoweringly.
I haven't decided about this soup. I followed it perfectly and it was HOT! I tried it right off the stove though so the hot was from the peppers and from the temp. I am confused about the serving size too, I am assuming 1 cup.
