very similar to a soup I do as well, but I will tell you one BIG difference that I Think you will like!
I always blend about 1/4-1/3 of the soup up with an immersion blender (you can use a regular blender if you dont have an immersion).
it makes the texture PERFECT! - 10/29/12
This recipe looks really good! My husband doesn't like spicy foods, so I'll have to omit the jalapeno pepper, but I'm looking forward to trying it out soon! - 5/25/09

Considering how much it makes the one pepper does nothing for making it too spicy. In fact my wife and In-Laws are all non-spicey and cannot get enough of the soup.
I can tell you - this is awesome. I have never eaten soup to the bottom of the bowl before this! Yum!!! - 4/19/09

I don't see an option for editing this so I have to leave a comment here. During step 4 is when the spices are added as well. I also used some of the ingredients listed here. I think one of those must have been high in sodium as it can certainly be made with lower sodium than listed.
