Quick, easy and just a little bit spicy!! A great garnish for this soup is homemade fresh tomato salsa. If you do not all ready have a recipe just combine 2 diced tomatoes, 1/3 cup green onions, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves, 1 teaspoon lime juice or red wine vinegar and salt to taste. Top soup with fresh cilantro and salsa and you will love the flavor.

Very good soup!!! I didn't have any frozen corn so I used 1 can of corn (drained) and I used 1 (4oz) can of green chiles instead of 1/2c. I also added a little more carrots and added a green bell pepper (chopped). ALSO I grilled some chicken seasoned with cajun seasonings cubed it and added that too! VERY GOOD! Not too spicy but a nice "warm." Instead of salsa I sprinkled some sharp cheddar cheese overall. Would make again! Thanks Corwynn for another great recipe! Read More

This was good but it lacked something and I couldn't put my finger on what it was. I did run short on wild rice and threw in some brown but the rice wasn't the problem. I think next time I would lose the carrots and add rinsed black beans in the end instead? Anyway I am giving it a 4 because it was was very flavorable and easy to make and my hubby enjoyed it but it just lacked a little something to me. Read More

I used less celery and onion and probably a little more rice. EXCELLENT for a cold night. Thick and yummy with crusty bread and butter on the side. Kids didn't complain too much either and it was nice to have a meat-less meal. Read More

I made it creamy by sauteing the onions and adding flour and cooking that for a minute. Then at the end I added milk/cream. It was pretty amazing! Thanks for the idea Read More

I loved how quick and simple this recipe was. I only made one change--I sauteed the onion carrots and a little fresh minced garlic in a little EVOO before adding the other ingredients. The spices are spot on. Everything in this soup worked together very well. Though we liked this soup both my husband and I were trying to figure out what it was missing. It's almost there......it just needs a little "oomph". As is NO leftovers. Read More
