    The flavor is yummy! I used 2 whole jalapeños because this household loves our spicy food and I might even throw in another next time ;) also, I used rice to thicken it. The one cup seemed too much as it came out thick after blending. Not as brothy as the picture, more bisque-like. But will definitely be trying again because it is super yummy

    I used two jalapenos because I like it spicy. Great recipe thanks for sharing!

    We really enjoyed it! Quick and tasty meal. I used a whole jalapeño and it still wasn't very spicy however. It did have a bit of a 'kick' that would grow but not much. We will definitely be making this again, just with 1.5 jalapeños 👌

    It was really good. Not as spicy as expected even with a full jalepeno but next time will just do more.

    Tasty soup. Used a full jalapeño without any seeds and the heat was perfect. Used 4 cups of chicken broth and no water because a carton of broth is 4 cups, so why use only 3 cups? I also used more zucchini because I had a big one from the garden that weighed closer to 2.5 lbs. The soup was a nice consistency at the end. Very good.

    I made the soup, it was very good for dinner. My only "complaint" is that it's not anywhere near as good for left overs. You get more of the flavor of the bread coming through when it's reheated. Will try again maybe with less of the bread. Seasoning and other ingredients make for a very good soup. It is worth trying.

    I've cooked this soup time and time again. You will be pleasantly surprised on the delicious taste zucchini will make. I was shocked. I'm gonna cook it tonight.

    Very good recipe. I added a whole jalapeno as opposed to a half and since I didn't have any day old bread, I bought a grocery store bolillo and dried it in the oven for a few minutes before cutting it and adding it to the recipe.

    It came out well . I used vegetable broth instead .great recipe n very simple to make indeed with simple ingredients. I prefer using bread as thickening agent in the soup .
