Top Review by logoworks

I dont usually review recipes (although I always check out others reviews!) but this one was so good, I had to! I make trips to Max and Ermas for their soup and this is BETTER than that!! I tripled it for a football party and it went like crazy! I did cut down on the chili powder (using 5 teas. instead of 6 - tripling the recipe, remember?) and it was plenty spicy. But then I have a low threshold for hot... Definitely make it if you are looking for comfort food that everyone will love...
