This recipe is not good for Morning Anorexia Diet. It is much too heavy in fats.

Great for Atkins.
I made this the other night and added chicken and jalapeno. It was awesome!

it's not helpful to have other dieters making negative comments when the recipe is OBVIOUSLY for Atkins.

I just made this soup this afternoon. It is awesome and full of great flavors. I have been getting caught up on bland food. This is just what I needed. I added 1/4 of cooked bacon for flavor and taste. Sooooo good! Thanks for the recipe!

I made this yesterday - a rainy, cold, crummy day! It was warm, satisfying and wonderful, not to mention perfect for the induction phase of Atkins. Thank you!!!
