Introduction

Sometimes you want to hit that protein craving hard. This is a virtually salt-free recipe (sorry, vegans, not for you!).

If you like it a little creamier, pour off 2C of the soup and split peas, leaving out the carrots and chicken. Blend completely, then add back in.

If you want a vitamin C (and spice) kick, toss in 14-16 rinsed dried red chili peppers, with seeds, chopped into 2" segments. (Add AFTER the water, so you don't mace yourself in the privacy of your own home!)
