Step 8:
Next add in the turnip greens. It is nice to leave them large and un-chopped so just give them a tear or two with your hands as you add them. Don't worry if they overfill the pot, they will shrink down as they cook and lose water.

Step 9:
Once the greens have started to shrink, add water on top and let the mixture come to a boil.

Step 10:
Then chop and add the tomato, and the chilies, and let the soup boil for another 5-10 minutes. In this soup the vegetables do not get over cooked, so don't let the soup boil too long.
