For a while, both of my sisters were following the Paleo diet. They were always trying to get me to try their recipes (remind me to tell you about the avocado brownies, ew!) and occasionally I actually liked one of them. This soup was my absolute favorite. It is so good for you — but you’d never know it with all the awesome flavors swimming around in the bowl. I originally though it would just be dinner for Jeff and I, but (surprise!) the kids ended up liking it. Carter may have eaten around the kale, but what 7-year-old wouldn’t?
You can make this soup as spicy or un-spicy as you want. I removed the seeds from the jalapeno before using it, because I’m a wimp. You can leave them in if you’re not. The other peppers aren’t hot, so don’t worry about those. They just add great flavor.
You don’t have to be Paleo to like this soup, I promise! (I mean, my name isn’t Sugar Mama for nothin’!)
