This soup is spicy! And I love it. This spiciness is in part because of the curry powder I substituted for cumin, which I had originally planned to use but then discovered I was out of. And the whole jalapeño and cayenne pepper added to it don’t hurt, either!

I felt like Adam Sandler in Billy Madison when he tells his first-grade teacher, Miss Lippy, why he colored a blue duck: “I made the duck blue because I’d never seen a blue duck before and I wanted to see one.” Yeah, that’s a random allusion, but it is so stuck in my head in connection with this salad!
