"I ALMOST followed the directions......I think that water has no flavor, so I used chicken broth instead of the plain water. This soup freezes well and makes enough to share with a neighbor. Really tas..." See morety! "
"I didn't have any fresh cayenne peppers so I just added cayenne pepper the spice. Looking at this recipe it didn't have any other spices but cayenne so I added, thyme, oregano, basil, and bay leaves..." See more. Also, I didn't understand why no salt and pepper were listed so I added some of that too. All in all the recipe turned out well and was very flavorful. I'm freezing to save some for later and I'm sure the flavors will become stronger."
"This recipe was a bust, and I would not make it again. I would substitute tomato juice and/or chicken broth for the 3 c of water. I had to add an additional large can of tomatoes to get any flavour to..." See more the dish besides watery jalapeno. I tried to follow another reviewer's advice of adding other herbs, but this thing was just bland. Oh, and I would use whole Okra, because the chopped okra get slimy (and are a disturbing grey color inside)"
