      Great soup! I am out of milk (again!) so I just used additional chicken stock. Pepper mix was from my garden. Added some Velveeta to make up the difference. Only other thing I changed was adding one clove garlic. (onion is incomplete w/out garlic in my house!)

      I made this using banana peppers instead of chili peppers because we had both banana peppers and jalapenos from the garden. The soup was doing great until I added the milk. I used 1% because that is what we had in the fridge. It thinned the soup out and I couldn't get it to thicken back up. We prefer a thicker soup so next time I'll use half and half or maybe some cream. Other than that minor detail, we all thought it had good flavor without being too hot. I served it fresh baked biscuits on the side.
