There are many, many variations of Pepper Pot Soup. This version contains chicken, although one could easily change to beef, by using diced lean beef and beef broth. The cream of coconut gives the soup a sweet flavour and the scotch bonnet pepper spices it up. The flavour is actually better the second day when reheated.
