Snipped fresh parsley (opt.)

My Review:
Overall, the recipe was great. It tasted good and was very easy to make. I did think this soup was a little spicy, so would substitute the green chili diced tomatoes to a milder can of diced tomatoes next time I make it. (Ryan, however, thought it was fine...) The first thing Ryan said when he saw this recipe was, "It needs meat." Haha. So I added meat, which I thought was a good addition. I didn't have any parsley, so left that out, but think it would be a good addition, as well. I think this one is definitely going in the recipe box :)
