While the rest of the nation (where it is REALLY cold)  is mocking us for feeling cold in Florida, the Dougherty Report decided it was time for soup. Not just any soup; this is a warming, spicy, tasty soup that will become one of your staples at home. Everything was in the fridge and pantry for this recipe. We didn’t have to go out into the cold weather to buy anything new.
