Recipe by Leilani
I received this wonderful recipe from my sister. I love that the only preparation needed is to chop up some garlic and herbs. I really like flavor of this soup's base as it is seasoned with garlic, herbs, tomatoes and chicken. This is a great meal to make when time is short. Lastly, I do not care for red peppers. In most recipes, I won't include them. Thankfully I tried this with the red peppers included, and I can't imagine this soup without them.
