Creamy Tomato and Jalapeno Soup

posted on: Friday, May 10, 2013

I didn't make it very far in the Post a Day in May series. Go figure. In my defense it's been warm here, so warm in fact that we've spent our days playing in the dirt and running in the park, while our nights have involved scrubbing off the fun. And when warm days seem few and far between we have to enjoy them while we have them. Here, here, for summertime, friends!

On that same note it, snowed last week (our weather is so fickle, I can't make this stuff up). So I whipped up this spicy dish using my leftover jalapenos. It's a tasty one, I promise!

Creamy Tomato and Jalapeno Soup

5 pureed jalapenos (remove seeds)
1 pureed medium yellow onion
5 purred garlic gloves
1 can petite diced tomatoes 
1 TBS olive oil
1 8 oz. can chicken broth
2 cups half and half
2 tsp cumin
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
dash of crushed red peppers
1 TBS lime zest

Tortilla chips

Puree jalapenos, onion, and garlic clothes. Place pureed mixture in soup pot with olive oil. Slowly saute until  smell is flavorful. Mix in diced tomatoes, chicken both, cumin, cilantro, and red peppers simmer for half-an-hour. Mix in half-and-half and lime zest, simmer for an additional ten minutes. 

Garnish with tortilla chips and cheese.



  1. Oh man, this sounds deeeelicious. And I have everything, but the half and half. This calls for a run to the store!

  2. How hot does it end up being? It sounds delish but I'm a little bit of a wimp!

    1. I'm a wimp too. It does have a kick to it so if you really can't stand hot stuff eliminate 3 if the jalapeƱos. I've also mixed a can of tomato basil soup into before to delute the hotness (the tomato basil soup is pre-made at Costco).

  3. This is right up my alley! And yeah...I think I've blogged once so far in May? I thought about doing the blogging challenge in May, but haven't had a whole lot of motivation-yes, because of the warm weather :)
