This delicious hot and spicy soup was very comforting. It was quick and easy to make with ingredients always found in my pantry. The meat and vegetables were tender and the flavors intense. Unsure of what kind of chili sauce to use, I opted for half sweet & hot chili sauce and half sriracha hot sauce, they were wonderful in the dish, complimenting it not over powering at all. A very nice use of contest ingredients, Good Luck in the contest.
Very satifying, comforting soup. I used some mild chili sauce in this, and other than that made this as written. Seasonings, and the combination of vegetables were very satisying. The beef broth gave it that extra flavor to this. You hit this recipe right on the nail, very nice creation, and definately well. enjoyed. Good luck in the contest.
While apprehensive about the soup being too sweet, I elected to make this on a rainy weekend. It ended up great! I adapted the recipe to prepare in a crockpot, but those were technique rather than ingredients; however I did omit the beef. Even without the beef the soup is satisfying. This was a well flavored, broth based soup. The soup is spicy without being too hot for average diners. I would make it again. Good luck!
