I couldnt find the dried new mexico peppers- so I just used 2 jalapenos (total of 3 for the recipe)- it came out amazing- so good & so filling!
This soup was worth every second of effort that went into it! I will make this again and again! I did omit the lime zest, but followed the recipe exactly as stated otherwise and it is, hands down, one of the best soups ever!! Highly recommended!!
Why did i wait so long to try this one???? this is a very special soup that is going straight to my keeper file. i even skipped the roasted red peppers and cilantro; i would go the extra step if i had company, though. i used 2 new mexican chilis and one jalapeno, and it turnd out quite mild. Next time i'll add more, but this was truly delightful as is!
