A little bit sweet and a little bit spicy - but you can make it anywhere from mild to wild! Although relatively low-fat, low-calorie and high-fiber, it is delicious, flavorful and satisfying. You may choose to only partially puree for a chunkier texture. This soup freezes very well. Garnish with sour cream, cilantro, sourdough croutons, and cheese.

Very good soup! It was pretty easy to make and I followed the recipe exactly except for adding some cubed ham at the end. I think next time I would use less broth maybe 5 cups instead of 6 as I'd like it to be a little thicker. Read More

The flavors of this soup balance so nicely. The sweetness of the potato against the lime and salsa were delicious. I did make three small changes. I had fresh salsa so instead of pureeing it I left it whole to add texture to the soup. Also since I love the chili lime flavor instead of black pepper I used chili flakes I dried from my bumper crop of peppers this year and instead of plain salt I added chili-lime flavored salt. Heavenly on a cold gray day! Read More
