I like this recipe. I used fresh jalepenos instead of canned chiles, and the soup ended up wayyyy too spicy for comfort. I'm planning to make this again but without the jalepenos to give it a real shot. This was a good compliment to some bean burritos (and Lentil Burritos) I made for a Mexican theme.
We enjoyed this soup. We got 4 main course servings, and I added about 1 1/2 cups of cooked pinto beans. I also left out the chillies (they're not easy to obtain in cans in Australia) and left off the topping because I didn't have the ingredients. I didn't feel like we missed anything, though. I'd make this again.
This is an incredible soup. The first time I made it, I made it as written but without cumin and used stewed tomatoes. The second time I made it I added a can of kidney beans. It was still good, but not as good as the original recipe. It is fast to make with lots of flavour. Thanks for the recipe.
