      I always garnish this soup with fresh cilantro, a squeeze of lime juice, some diced avocado and some crunchy tortilla strips.

      A whole meal in a bowl. This is so easy and so tasty. This is going into the regular rotation at our house. I didn't have any jalapeno pepper, so I just used a regular yellow pepper, which still added some spice. I added some carrots to bring some extra nutrition and they fit in well with the flavors. Thanks for sharing!

      This was delicious and perfect for a 14 degree cold night. It was too cold to go to the grocery so since I did not have a jalapeno pepper I substituted 1/8 tsp. red ground cayenne pepper. I did not add any salt and only about 1/2 tsp. black pepper. Also no garnishes so I ate it with Breton whole wheat crackers. It hit the spot. DELICIOUS!!
