This soup is easy and only takes about 30 minutes to prepare.

I sautéed onions and carrots, slowly and over a low to medium heat in olive oil and butter, salt and pepper them.  That took about10 minutes.

I used jarred roasted red peppers but feel free to roast your own, you will need two.  I also used one chipotle pepper in adobo sauce.  Add all of the peppers to the onions and carrots.  Toss in a few dashes of cumin and cayenne pepper.  Pour in a half cup of chicken broth and a half cup fire roasted tomatoes.

Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.

I used an immersion blender to puree everything in the pot.  Then added a half cup of heavy whipping cream.

Stir and serve!  Top with your favorite toppings.
