Spicy chicken soup – a perfect feel-good meal

This recipe uses two types of pepper: jalapeño for the heat and red bell pepper for a little extra flavor. It’s a nice amount of spice – not so hot as to turn off those with sensitive taste buds. The cumin and taco seasoning give it a little more Southwestern taste too.
