      This soup has lots of flavor, and is different from what I usually fix. The sour cream gave a nice creaminess to it that I enjoyed. My husband wasn't crazy about it, but he doesn't care for lentils. I did use regular lentils as I couldn't find red ones. I used vegetarian broth, left out the jalapenos and added a little hot sauce instead. Thanks chia! I'm glad I tagged this in Zaar tag!
