Tips  

Cilantro is the green leaves of the coriander plant. The spicy flavor of cilantro is modified when it is used in cooked foods.

Add flavor, color and vitamins to soups and stews by thickening them with pureed cooked vegetables instead of flour or cornstarch.

While the soup simmers on the stove top, whip up a pan of cornbread. Chilled lemon or lime-flavored mineral water makes a refreshing beverage for this spicy main dish.
