There is an amazing amount of flavor in this simple soup. It's unsubstantial while still managing to be light and thats a good trick to pull off. I used a good (restaurant quality) chicken soup base and with the fresh ingredients it just popped like a lively Mariachi band. The heat level was perfect for my taste. I'll make a bigger batch next time! :D
