    Rita~'s Note:

    Epazote is a weedlike Mexican herb which adds a distinctive flavor. It is sometimes available at Fiesta and other Mexican specialty markets. Cilantro can be used as an alternative.

      This is great! I halved the recipe but still used a full chipotle - great kick and so much flavor! I included the optional corn, and we enjoyed the extra burst of flavor they provided. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

      Wonderful flavors and easy to make. The chipotle gives this delicious soup just enough heat. Thanks again Rita for another winner!
