Really? "Hot" soup in the summer?
Some may interpret that phrase as either a sadistic joke, a terribly misguided choice, or a little of both. And if you happen to live anywhere near me in the broiler sometimes known as Texas, I wouldn't fault you for thinking it downright crazy. But believe it or not, keeping your diet well supplied with steaming soup, warm tea, and fiery salsas in the summer is not such a bad thing. And as ironic as it may sound, it may actually help your body to remain cooler.
