I really luv the soup. It's light but very filling, however I did make a change and used my creole seasoning instead of chili powder. To give it a little kick.

This recipe is super easy and quick; a prerequisite in my home. The ingredients are nearly staples in my pantry (with the exception of the green onion) and the soup itself is delicious. Because my family likes things on the spicy side, I double the amount of chili powder.

Yummy. Sometimes simple is so good. I have made this soup several times now, and I am always happy with the results. It is easy, fast and tasty. I add 1/2 a chopped jalepeno (when you are asked to add the green part of the scallion) to spice it up!

This was very good! It was very simple...the ingredients are things that I normally have on hand, making it quick to make. Next time I am going to add a jalepeno to heat it up a bit.

I made this, and it was really easy. I have two young children, and they can be picky, but they both really liked this. I am going to try it with a sweet potato and see how that goes!
