      This was a great flavor combo and is a very low calorie treat. I sort of reduced the recipe by half LOL -- let me explain. I used 2 red bell peppers, one 14 oz can of chicken broth, 1 1/2 Tbsp of tomato paste, and the zest and juice of two limes. I left the oil, onion, garlic and chili pepper (used one whole serrano) amounts as the recipe states because I like those flavors and wanted some heat. The lime part is the only thing I think I will change when I make it next time -- the zest and juice of two whole limes was a bit overwhelming and took away from the red bell pepper flavor (which I really enjoyed that the red bell peppers were NOT roasted). An easy and unusual soup. :)
