    Sounds sooo yummy! I will have to try without the jalapenos, BUT, they sure would warm one up, huh? - 10/14/09

  • This sounded better than it tasted. Even with the jalapeno, the soup was very VERY bland. Next time I will use no salt added chicken broth to cook the potatoes and vegetables in. That should give it a bit more flavour as well as maybe sprinkling some bacon bits on top. - 10/12/11
