      This is almost EXACTLY like the soup at Rumbi. However, Rumbi's soup has cilantro added somewhere near the end. I made a pot of this and my husband and I ate it ALL. I'm making more today. I also omitted the hot pepper sauce. I will save myself a lot of money with this recipe!

      I just went to Rumbi's and their version was fantastic. I will try this recipe but as one reviewer said it needs some Cilantro and in my opinion a good dose. That was so key to the flavors I experienced today. Also, that reviewer said she omitted the hot pepper sauce. Rumbi's had just enough to notice it. My wife loved it and she cannot eat anything more than mildly seasoned recipes. I thought it was important too and would suggest starting with maybe 1/2 teaspoon if you are worried. As for the look others have questioned, I can only respond to what Rumbi's had and theirs was fairly thin with a definite milky look to it. Maybe like a slightly more watery version of skim milk. I rated it based on the average rating at the time I wrote this review.

      This was way yummy! I used to work at Rumbi (though not as a cook, so I never knew the actual recipe), but this was pretty darn close to it. I had company over and they all loved it. The directions were a little off though, they need some revising. But usually as long as I have all the ingredients I can get the gist of it. Will be making this again!
