If desired, serve with optional ingredients.
Recipe Notes

Test Kitchen tips

  • You'll love how hearty and filling this is for a meatless soup.
  • Don't skip the lime wedges—the little bit of acid really perks up the flavour of the soup.

Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
