    If you like cilantro, this soup is for you. It is very similar to a top rated recipe from Southern Living magazine so I thought I would try it. This soup is really good, my whole family loved it and it was easy to make. This recipe is a keeper!!! The only thing I would change is I would grind the cilantro - with the garlic - in the blender instead of the food processor to make it a little more smooth.

    If you like cilantro, you will LOVE this soup! I am a huge cilantro fan and was looking for a recipe to use up my leftover cilantro, so I thought I would give it a try. It was VERY easy and VERY tasty. As the other comment suggested, I will probably throw my garlic in the blender with my cilantro and broth next time. I made 1/2 a batch, and my husband and I ate the entire pot-full for dinner last night. He added the red pepper flakes to his, but I didn't think it needed it. Thanks for a great recipe, Di!

    This was ok. More effort than it is worth.

    You have to love cilantro to love this recipe... And I do!! I added some sliced boneless/skinless chicken breast and even using low fat cream cheese and sour cream it still turned out awesome.
