To serve, ladle soup into individual bowls. Sprinkle with pumpkin or sunflower seeds
A hearty side dish for everyday or holiday meals.
- Ridiculously Easy Jalapeño PicklesAt the beginning of last fall, the jalapeño plants in my garden went into overdrive, and I found myself with a whole bunch of peppers all at one time. Now, I love jalapeños. I put slices of them, seeds and all, on sandwiches, tacos, burritos, and burgers all summer long. I love the heat and […]
