This is one of my family's all-time favorite soups that I have made for years --- you may adjust the peppers to suit heat level, all other amounts may be adjusted also :)

This was very good. I did add more flour to make it thicker (added about two handfuls) and also put in a can of Rotel instead of the tomato/chilis. Thanks!
