This was awesome! I'm putting it into my regular line-up of fall and winter soups - very easy to put together and warms you from the inside out. For me, the cilantro absolutely makes this soup and I wouldn't skip it! I'll be making again, thanks for this light, easy, quick soup. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2008.
