Very good flavors! I used two large chipotles and it was spicy for sure. Quick and easy too.

This was really tasty! The only thing I changed was I added a small red bell pepper because I had a bunch of them in the fridge. I will make this again and again. In fact, next time I will make a double batch because it went so fast.

I made this soup last night & it was excellent. It was super easy for a weeknight, too...& loaded with flavor. I will probably cut back on the broth (maybe 1& 1/2 cups) next time because I like my soup a bit thicker. It's packed with flavor! I also recommend using at least 1/2 t. ground coriander (freshly ground is best); 1/4t (especially from a jar) would never have been noticeable.

Loved it. Very flavorful. Substituted chipotle sauce of peppers and 2 % milk of Almond milk as that's what I had on hand. Nice layers of flavor. Would make again.
