This soup has some strange ingredients, but I swear that it's some of the best soup I've ever had.

Excellent! Personally, I like a little more onion, but otherwise, made as directed. I served with brown rice.
Excellent recipe that i have made several times now, but have not posted a review till now. I have made as is, and sometimes I play around a bit. Last night I added a pablono pepper, and ground coriander, and added a little parsly before serving. Here in the state we don't think of chicken and peanut butter going together very often, but IT IS SUCH A GOOD COMBO. thanks Paisley!
The taste is delicious, AND it is a breeze to put together, my favorite combination!
