    This was just OK....nothing special. Personally I found it WAY too watery and bland. I made with chicken stock, added 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes, and 1t of cumin with 1/2t chili powder in an attempt to give it some flavor. I'll finish eating the servings I made and froze, but won't be making this again. Sorry! Thanks for sharing.....

    This is a decent soup. Next time I'll make it with vegetable stock though because it was a bit bland. It was fine without being pureed. I agree with the user, Parsley, that this soup would be great with some tomatoes.

    This is a good, healthy soup. I used vegetable broth instead of water (I think it would be a bit bland w/ just the water). I sauteed my green peppers with the onion and garlic. I decided not to puree half the mixture, but it would be great either way. Some diced tomatoes (fresh or canned) would be nice in this soup, too. I served it w/ some shredded cheddar and cilantro on top. Thanks for posting this. I'll make this again, maybe next time w/ some tomatoes.
