Soups are always satisfying and warming,
and these soups certainly fill the bill. Drawn from Thailand, Africa,
India and the Middle East, where chilies and spices are everyday foods,
the recipes are a rich mixture of flavorful ingredients, enlivened by
the addition of hot pickles, peppers and chilies, as well as aromatic
spices. Hot and Spicy Seafood Soup and Mulligatawny Soup are sure to
stimulate the appetite.
