This soup serves 2 and easily doubles. The measurements for the seasonings are pretty on-point, but you may want to add a little more salt, use less cayenne, etc. Just taste it while cooking; it's the best part! You can also cook it for a little longer if you have the time. The flavors will soak in a little better, but it's delicious either way.
