Any soup you make pretty much would start with those ingredients. That is just basicks. So pick a name and you're ready to go. How about Mexican Chicken soup? You'd need all the above ingredients, plus some, and in the end your soup will definitely have a kick, areally good cick if you wish.

You are what you eat.

Not sure I agree about okra bringing only thickening to a soup or stew. It is a delightful vegetable.
love, love and grew up on fried okra. only one in my family that liked boiled,.

I grew up eating okra and enjoyed its taste. While it does act as a thickener, it also has a distinctive flavor.
