Introduction

I have never served this to anyone that didn't ask for the recipe after. This is a light soup that doesn't taste light. It is very filling, very little fat and FULL of fiber.

    This is good, but it was too hot! I would cut back on the jalapenos next time. - 1/31/11

  • I really enjoyed this soup. It was a little spicy but fullfilling. Because of the spiciness, I was able to keep portion size in control. I would rate this with 5 stars. - 1/26/09
