Cream of Jalapeño Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Carianne

Very tasty. For a richer soup, use the heavy cream and serve small portions. To make vegetarian, just sub veggie broth for chicken stock.

Excellent soup. Didn't have an avocado and dislike cilantro but even without them it was still marvelous. Frankly it tasted better the following day once the flavors blended.
