For those chilly days when you want to stay in and have soup, this will satisfy the need.
Okay, it was 80 degrees today but I still wanted SOUP!
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.
