This soup is tasty, easy-to-make and has a lot of potential. The cumin is a perfect addition. The Kahlua leaves an overpowering aftertaste, so I'd cut it back to a teaspoon. Also, the jalapeno didn't give the spice I expected. I used one (seeded), but think I could have used two and maybe even left some of the seeds in. It does refrigerate and reheat well, but we only got four -- not six -- serves from it. Thanks studentchef for a great effort.
