Spicy Carrot And Basil Soup

I originally made this soup with 2 birds eye chili's! It was really hot, but goooood!  So if you love hot food put 2 chili's in the soup, if you don't like it hot make sure to remove the seeds first.  I made this soup for lunch and accompanied by a grilled cheese sandwich.
