We can't wait to make this delicious, slightly spicy soup every summer when zucchini and squash are plentiful in our garden. We like to serve this soup with warm tortillas.

Good stuff! I get rave reviews anytime I make this dish. I like use to 8 oz of the cubed cheese and real tomatoes to make the soup a little healthier. I also use vegetable broth to make this vegetarian-friendly.

This is fast becoming my favorite soup recipe. To cut way down on the sodium I use fresh tomatoes rather than canned, fresh corn off the cob, and one fresh hot pepper with my own sodium free chicken broth. With all fresh veggies from my garden, this soup is both super tasty and healthy.

I thought this soup was pretty good but my husband told me not to make it again. It was way too spicy for my kids. I really did enjoy it though, since i like all thinks super hot i used rotel tomatoes with chili pepers it was the hottest one. i than added some jalapeno peppers. I served in bowls with shredded cheese and a dolop of sour cream. great
