“This is a hearty, spicy chicken soup that will give your immune system a huge boost and (in my opinion) kick any cold or flu!!!!! It does have a bite!! I cook this up at the sign of a cold and it does the trick. You can opt not to use the chilli - however Chilli gives your metabolism a hit and also shakes up any nasty mucus on your chest.”
