Actually, it's just a pinch. I bought the pepper before I left for El Paso and hadn't used it so I had to use a little but, the soup isn't for me. My wife's uncle and I are close and he's basically been in hospice care since Thanksgiving. He likes the soup I make but doesn't like or tolerate spice/heat. I AM A SPICE COOK!!! :-D 

 

Anyway, that is also why I pictured the adobo sauce but rethought adding it. Even so, the soup is amazing (you can actually taste the fact that both the chicken and veggies were roasted) but it has none of the 'heat' that I prefer...

Really don’t care that it’s -1° outside or that the windchill is -21°.

 

 

I wouldn't either, in fact living in the Chicago area I probably do it fairly often.

 

But with outside temps -20 to -25 and windchill pushing down to -55 I really don't intend to open any outside door unless there is an imperative need.

My dad was from Chicago; mom from Temple, Texas. The Texan in me would have taken on the challenge. Remember the Alamo!
