DH had this soup at a restaurant well before I had, and he loved it so much he took me there to taste it so I could re-create it at home. This is a very spicy soup, but could be made less spicy by substituting with a few yellow peppers (green throws the color off). Taste test your peppers as you're cutting them, the soup is bland if they're not hot. Serve with fresh bread and a beverage. I have also had a similar recipe using ground pork sausage, it was good- but I prefer the meat-less version. You can substitute something like yogurt for cream, but it changes the flavor and texture a bit.
