Based on a great soup served by the Columbia restaurant in Tampa, this firey soup cooks up quick when you're craving something spicy and hot.

This is a great soup, and would be worth an extra star if the ingredients list was a bit more specific. I had to guess the broth and garbanzo can sizes. I went with 500ml cartons of each of the broth and 440g cans of the garbanzo beans, and as I have never seen canned sliced potatoes, I went with 4 medium fresh ones. Apart from that, this was a wonderful soup you could easily make a complete meal of with slabs of crusty bread and butter.
