    Delicious and hearty soup! Love the red pepper flavor! Leftovers held up well, too. Served with bread for dipping.  -  11 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very good! I subbed half green bell pepper (chopped) for the jalapenos and since I didn't have veggie broth, I used chicken broth. Mildly spiced but great for this heat-sensative family! It did need some extra S&P but I'd make this again! Good recipe Silverwolf!  -  19 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This soup tastes great but is a recipe that a beginner may find complicated. In the end, it is worth it---our party licked their bowls clean!  -  17 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
