    Bergy's Note:

    I love this soup. simple but great flavor to start off a Mexican meal. Adjust the hotness to your own likeing. Although the original recipe did not say "cilantro" I believe at least a 1/4 cup of fresh chopped cilntro will really enhance the flavor of this soup.

      This has such a wonderful flavor. It reminded me of the tortilla lime soup I had in Mexico. A definite keeper!

      The only thing missing from this recipe is cilantro! It's the finishing touch! Loved it!
