"This recipe is delicious! My husband, who hates sweet potatoes, went back for more and ate the leftovers for lunch the next day! We actually like it better with only one can of tomatoes, and seeds from about 1/4 of the jalapeƱo. It's a little sweeter and spicier that way; perfect balance! Enjoy!"

So good! I cut the tomatoes down and put some chile powder in it instead of peppers and used water and vinegar instead of stock. Definitely will make again!

Excellent soup! Found added cilantro to be overpowering but very good and added cayenne for extra spice. Love it!!

Very good. I found it had too many tomatoes, so may use 1 can next time. Pureed it all & everyone loved it!!
