"I am so excited about this soup! It is a chicken broth soup flavored and "textured" by a bright salsa puree and has mozzarella melting in the bottom of the bowl! It is extremely simple to make. If the directions seem long, it's only because I've given lots of notes. Very little chopping and very little cooking to this recipe. I think the melting mozzarella makes this broth soup special! What I like most about serving this low-cal soup is that it can be easily adjusted to meet the taste of your guests . There are garnishes that add the finishing touches to the soup and make this recipe fun for entertaining. You can add any of the garnishes to the soup immediately before serving if you prefer, but I would NOT add the sour cream. Even if you temper the sour cream, it makes the soup cloudy. I simply put a small dish of sour cream on the table for each guest. I dip the tip of my spoon in the sour cream and then take soup on to the spoon. I'm one of those "perfect bite" kind of people, that's why I love serving the soup with the garnishes!! Enjoy!!"

"This tasted great! I love the idea of cheese at the bottom! I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough flavor since there are really no salty ingredients, but it was still very good. Thanks!"
"Great concept with the cheese on the bottom of the bowl. But when I tasted it at step 9 the raw onion flavor was very intense â€“ not all red onions are mild and sweet. I had to cook it a few minutes. Additionally, the cumin was as overpowering as the onions (and I LOVE cumin), while the tomatoes were almost unnoticeable. I ended up adding about a cup of commercial salsa to dilute the intensity of the onions and cumin and provide a better balance of flavor. I served it with corn chips because I was feeding kids (who really enjoyed the melted cheese). If I make this again Iâ€™ll double the tomatoes, and halve the onion and cumin."
"This is so tasty,and was easy to make,I tried it because of the cheese in the bottom of the bowl.Will make it agin and think I will try a crusty bread bowl.You may be the one ,GOOD LUCK"
"Really good soup which made a perfect lunch. The directions look complicated but it is actually very easy to make. I love the garnishes with it to! Good Luck in RSC!"
