Now listen up, soups are not my favorite meals to dine on, but when I do I appreciate a haughty bowl of creamy, steamy flavorful soup! 

You can only imagine the excitement I created when I first tasted the Jamaican pepper pot soup!  

I was at a local restaurant and I ordered it as an appetizer. 

Needless to say, I requested to see the chef, we met, fell in love, got married and had 5 beautiful children together… just kidding, but wouldn’t that make an interesting story, Oh well!

I did meet with the chef though and requested a simple recipe minus whatever secret ingredients he might have added because I myself am a genius in the kitchen and would make my own, hair raising, toe curling, dancing in your chair, are you tasting this soup? soup!

And that's exactly what I did! 

The Jamaican pepper pot soup is famous for this one Ingredient… the callaloo! The callaloo is a green leafy plant that looks like a Kale and spinach hybrid.

It is absolutely delicious and makes this soup one of the best to come out of Jamaica!

Here’s MY Jamaican Pepper pot recipe (below)…

NOTE: You can enjoy pepper pot soup even if you’re a vegetarian, just minus the meat!! ENJOY!!
