My husband loves spicy food, and the hotter the better. This is a soup we can both enjoy without being too hot.

I love this recipe! Next time I think I will add a can or two of drained corn to it. My family actually ask me to make this soup.

This is very tasty, but I would cut back on the black pepper next time...a little too much fire for this tendermouth.

7/6/2008: This is one of my favorite soups. I have used ground turkey as well. I also like to substitute a cup of chicken broth for one of the cans of tomato sauce (just 'cause I like it a little less tomato-y). I use my french-fry cutter to get perfect little cubed potatoes. 10/1/2009 Update: I made this today using thin round steaks, sliced into strips, instead of ground beef/turkey. I didn't have any hot pepper sauce so I used 1/2 - 3/4 tsp HOT red paprika. Very good! I was told I could make this again. :)
