love it! loved all the fresh ingredients, loved the explosion of color (even after cooking), loved the heartiness of the texture (reducido considering it's vegetarian). Particularly loved the little bit of kick of the fresh jalapeño (I took out the seeds.. and wore nitrile gloves while preparing.. suggest you all do the same).

Very delicious soup! You can add whatever you want to it. I did not use red lentils (didn't realize that's what it called for when I bought them) so the soup turned out a bit brothy. I added cherry tomatoes, cannoli beans, black beans, and different spices. I also replaced russet potatoes with baby potatoes and large carrots with chopped baby carrots.
Yummy indeed! Highly recommend and easy to alter ingredients with what you have.

Tasty but needed more flavor, will add another jalapeño next time and maybe change up the spices, enjoyed with or without sour cream.
Very nice. Tasty and great for winter.
Great. Left out the tators and added ham. Awesome!

It was very tasty however the soup was a little more watery than I expected. I did 2/3 red lentils and 1/3 brown and the texture was more like a thin vegetable soup than thick and creamy like the picture suggests. I would recommend doubling the potato and jalapeno...will cook again.

Def don’t leave out the “heat.” It ends up pretty mild, even with half a jalapeño. We have a small child, so I was worried it would be too hot, but it wouldn’t have been. It needs that spice to add some depth. It was really good, though! Easy and full of healthy veggies. We didn’t do sour cream, and it tasted fine.

Super tasty... definitely making again!

I just made this yesterday! Since we're eating only plant based (Dr. McDougall) we don't add any sour cream... and this soup is still awesome! I definitely recommend the low for 8 hours instead of on high for 5.
Rebecca 13 Dec 2017
Delicious! The sour cream is the perfect topper
Joe 11 Dec 2017

Defteras 11 Nov 2017
Brought back childhood memories! Super! Thanks!
Lenna Scarsdale 11 Nov 2017
It was delicious, I did leave out the potatoes & only because we are trying to not have that type of thing right now. We will definitely be making this again!
Susan Carvel 9 Nov 2017
My husband and I really enjoyed this soup. Next time, I'm going to add diced tomatoes.
Rebecca M. 9 Nov 2017
I️ used brown lentils instead of red, just because I️ couldn’t find red at the store. Turned out nothing like the recipe/photos/reviews said. Although that’s probably my fault due to the lentils. I️ would definitely try again with red lentils
I added mushrooms, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of corn and some extra spices. Delicious!
Agnes 3 Nov 2017
A bit spicy for my children but overall really good.
Alea H. 3 Nov 2017
One of the best soups I've ever made. even my pickiest eater remarked how delicious it was and my husband and I just kept saying how awesome it was. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
