A couple of notes about preparation:
The recipe calls for two jalapeno peppers that are seeded and finely diced. I followed the recipe and there's certainly a kick to this soup. I wouldn't change a thing, but if you're sensitive to spicy food you may want to adjust a little. Also, a pair of disposable gloves are the cat's meow when working with jalapenos. Great soup + Great Friends = Comfort. Enjoy!
