I followed part of the recipe, but added a bay leaf, a jalapeno pepper instead of Serrano, and a red bell pepper instead of a yellow pepper. I also added cabbage, carrots, celery, olive oil and ground turkey. I added 1/4 tsp hot red cayenne pepper along with some poultry seasoning, Lawry's seasoned salt and lime juice. It was really good, the rest of the family loved it too. A bit spicy but yum. I didn't have corn tortillas so I crumbled some corn tortilla chips in my bowl, put soup on top.
