      I made this for my hubby that has been having stomach problems. He actually enjoyed it and was able to digest it without any problems. It was a good mix of vegetables. I did not use hot, hot peppers because I didn't want his stomach worse. I had to add more salt because our chicken broth we use is low sodium. Besides from that for me, I wanted it a bit more spicy so I added few more drops of hot jalapeno sauce. It was not hard to make and very tasty.

      A great soup to take the chill off. Was concerned it might be to spicy for DH who does not care for heavily spiced foods, however he thought this was quite tasty and ate seconds. The lime, cilantro, and corn are a wonderful accent to this very flavorful soup. Thanks so much for the post.

      I think the serving size is off; I made half of the recipe and only had enough for 2 servings - I can't see how this could possibly serve 8-10 people. I used chicken breast instead of chicken thighs. I was hesitant about the cumin and used 1/2 of what was called for which was enough. I think the full amount might overpower the other ingredients The cumin worked well with the lime. The recipe does not call for salt, but I would add 1 tsp or to taste. Made for PRMR
