5 star yummy !!

I've made this soup recipe for years, and it always turns out perfectly. The only adjustments I've made are to use light sour cream instead of yogurt, and depending on the "guest list", I'll add some (home-jarred) jalapeno slices to kick it up a bit. The jalapenos go into the blender.

I made this for dinner and i feel like it is a pretty good soup for what is put into it. I used just under a cup of light sour cream instead of yogurt, 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice with some of the zest, and fresh lump crab meat that i added into the blender. I recommend this for an easy weekday dinner!

Just made this for lunch andwas disappointed in it. I followed the recipe excatly and found the soup to have a slightly bitter taste. I will make it again and try cutting the lemon juice down, and replacing the yogurt with sour cream. Did like how easy it was to prepare.
