Cream of

Jalapeno Soup

Recipe Details:

This is my husband’s favorite soup. I tried several different recipes but never got it exactly right, until this recipe. Cheriʼs HazelCream® makes it dairy-free, you may make it vegan or not depending on if you use veggie or chicken stock. We like some heat, so we keep the seeds in the jalapenos. If you haven’t cooked with jalapenos before, you may want to begin with a milder version by just using the outer skin. You can also use diced Jalopena peppers in a jar or can. You may add an additional step by using an emersion blender, but because all the veggies are finely chopped you don’t really need to do anything else. A wonderful soup for a cold winter’s day.
