So… I’m not huge fan of chilled soups. But the rooms picked a few for the cooking challenge and I’m not about to walk away from the challenge! Even after a long day and lots of stress I decided to tackle it anyways. Well, to be honest the rooms made this while I worked on the tacos.

As far as I’m concerned, cold soups are lovely in small amounts, as an appetizer or a side. Unfortunately this soup didn’t change my feelings. However, it was very tasty. It made a lovely side to some fish tacos. We actually used it as a topping for the tacos. I’ve used the leftovers as a dip for tortilla chips, too!
