SOUP WEATHER IS HERE!!!! Finally! This is the basics for my version but tweak it as you see fit. ( I will update with a picture too, stay tuned) *This can be made Vegetarian by omitting the bullion and using vegetable broth. If you do not like ANY spicy flavor remove the seeds and ribs from all the jalapenos and this will resolve that, of course, if you like lots of spicy then don't remove any.
