Thanks for the pictures and instructions LT! This looks just beautiful. I've never used cactus before but I've wanted to..can't wait to make it. I love your soup mugs, are they for canning or freezing? How convenient to just pop them in the microwave for heating.

The Red-lidded ones are for freezing; the "Mason Jar" containers are for transportation........... I make a lot of soup, when I make soup, and it goes out and about on Monday, to my Souper friends !

no rice .........

I originally had rice in there, 2 cups long grain, but I adjusted later, omitting the rice.
Didn't notice it was still in the instructions.

That looks great! I've always thought that the groom had a different soup before the wedding? There are only two ingredients for it, tequila and lime. Maybe a little salt. I understand it is consumed in massive quantities.

Wow! Thanks for sharing it looks great! I am going to try it when the weather gets cool again -- already pushing 90 degrees here.

I think you are right about the grooms soup!
