The Spicier the Better!

I have always loved creating and making a good hearty stew or soup. There is nothing better than a tummy warmer of soup on a cold winter day!
The soup in this hub will take you on the "spicy" side of the fence. You can add or delete the hotter spices to your own liking, however, I haven't had a complaint yet!

      I love soups and salads! But I would go for a spiceless version. Thanks for sharing! Voted up and tweeted...

      I do too Anamika. Most of the time I would fix it a little less spicey, but there are those occassions where I need a little kick! It's good to know you can change it up to suit your own taste, isn't it? :) Thanks for the vote and shares!! You're a doll!

      Oh I'm so sorry Moon Daisy that you have a sore throat. I actually fixed the black bean soup a few nights back because I was also suffering a little sore throat... made it feel so good. Thank you so much for you vote :) Feel better soon!

      I love soups and although I am a vegetarian, I think I could substitute the chicken broth with veg broth and add tofu where meat was used. I might give this a try. Thanks Lisa :)

      Ruchira, actually, you can substitute the chicken broth with vegetable and use tofu. I think it would be very yummy. Don't fret though.. I am working on a soup hub for vegetarians as well :))

      Ok so this is decidedly "un-vegetarian", but I take the drippings from a really good pot roast-one with a lot of spices and a great cut of meat, either reduce it and deglaze a bit with some worcestershire or leave as is, freeze it, and use it as the base for a stock next time I am making a really big pot of soup, like a beef vegetable. Great for a fall meal!

      Well, that sounds very yummy. I love beef vegetable soup! Nothing wrong with it.. my series of recipes are designed to be for both meat eaters as well as vegetarians.. I'm a meat eater but loooove my veggies. Moderation is the key, right? Thanks for your salivating comment CMENYART! :)
