I love the way this soup leaves a pleasant little burn in your mouth without being too hot!

THIS. SOUP. IS. SOOOO. YUMMY!!! had to make 3 little changes - got into making it and realized I was out of garlic, so I used some garlic powder and I had a couple cups of chicken stock in the fridge so I used that with 8 cups of water and 4 boullion cubes and lastly, bought half and half instead of heavy cream by mistake!! Must confess, ate it until my tummy hurt - couldn't stop! Made for 3-Chefs Nov '09 UPDATE 01/26/10: my local grocery store had some nasty looking kale, so I substituted a package of frozen spinach, squeezed dry and chopped finely! Worked great!
