Last week I was on a soup kick; I made two delicious soups during the week. It was a chilly week in Florida so I took advantage of it. Did you make any soups last week? If so, what kind did you make?
While browsing through a few blogs last week, I found a clam chowder recipe over at The Kitchen is My Playground that used cream cheese in the soup. I thought this was a pretty awesome idea so I wanted to make a soup that incorporated cream cheese into the ingredients. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know I love spicy foods. If you haven’t been following long or if you’re new here, let me introduce myself. Hi, I’m Julie and I’m a spiceaholic! So of course, I decided to make a spicy soup. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
