Wow, definitely worth the extra effort Alaina. What an amazing chilled soup, the flavor is beautiful, soft and subtle with a sweet undertone and a lovey savoriness from the white pepper and cilantro. Sooo good, it was smooth and silky with a little heat and spice, just wonderful chilled. Thanks so much for sharing this treasure, which has gone into my Favorites Cookbook for 2012. Kudos.
