    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    This is a recipe from Simply in Season and features fresh veggies that are available locally in the summer. You can add one or a combination of cooked black beans, lima beans and chopped, cooked chicken. If you have grilled corn available it'll add a lovely smoky flavour.

      Simple, healthy and delicious. I did add some cumin and some oregano to add the Mexican flare (since hubby doesn't like the cilantro and I needed to add some other flavors). Can't wait to eat this for dinner tonight! And then tomorrow I am going to add some black beans I made from scratch and some chicken breast for a totally different meal later in the week :) Made for our Veggie VIP. . .thanks for posting!

      Too bland for me, but provided a good base. I added a handful of dried garlic chips, Cholula hot sauce, a can of drained black beans, about 2 Tbs of chili powder. It's now an excellent, hearty soup with Southwestern flair. Next time, I'll add green chilis instead of so much Cholula. Lime juice is terrific and, as someone else suggested, avacado with sprigs of cilantro. Yum.

      Made as written. It was bland (fam does not like Tabasco), even with fresh limes. So I added S&P and chili powder, but it was still bland. Easy to make, but short on flavor. Maybe some chopped green onion on top, or some green chiles, for the leftovers.
