    Melinda #2's Note:

    A rich and flavorful soup, full of vegetables and guilt free yumminess. I make a huge batch, then freeze the left over in individual serving size, for quick and easy lunches throughout the month. Feel free to substitute broccoli, cauliflower, frozen vegetables, using more of the ones you like and less of the ones you don't care for. I use what ever I happen to have on hand. So every time I make this it is a little bit different. If you don't care for spiciness, leave out the jalepeno and serrano. If you like more spiciness you can add some ground red pepper when adding the salt and pepper.
