1. Place all the ingredients (except the optional ones) in a heavy-bottomed 8-quart stockpot and bring to a gentle boil.
2. Reduce heat to low and cook, partially covered, for about 2-4 hours, depending upon consistency desired.
3. If you want a pureed soup or partially pureed soup, simply place at least half the soup, in batches, in a blender or food processor fitted with a steel blade and blend until smooth.
4. Just prior to serving, squeeze the juice of 1/4 lime on each serving and garnish with cilantro, basil, scallions, and sour cream or yogurt.
