Although we definitely enjoyed this soup, I probably took the 'Texas' right out of it by using just 1 small jalapeno pepper as well as reducing the amount of red pepper flakes & Tabasco sauce! Still much enjoyed the combo of flavors in this great soup ~ Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
