By putting some sour cream in the soup, it actually cools off some of the heat from the jalapeno pepper. Another way would be to not put so much jalapeno in in the first place! Either way it's a great soup! This recipe is from Weight Watchers. Note: I do not follow the Weight Watchers diet; I am providing this recipe for those who do. I add salt and other seasonings that I like. You may do as you wish.
