My husband & I really LOVED this soup! It's chunky and hearty a very satifying. We did top it with avacado which cooled the "heat" and added one can of chicken broth because we didn't think there was enough liquid, but all the flavors were GREAT. We were down to our last spoonful when we realized we'd forgotten the sour cream and cilantro - they would have been a good addition, but not necessary. We'll definitly make this again!
