With just a hint of jalapeño, this creamy soup is both elegant and delicious.

Top Review by Heavens Kitchen

Nice soup. I used roasted anaheim peppers instead of jalapenos. (That's just what I had fresh from the garden.) I left out the nutmeg as a personal preference. Unfortunately, the rest of my household isn't as keen on veggies as I am, so it looks like I'll be eatin' a lot of soup! I may try to freeze some. I did add a bit of chipotle to a small portion, and that was an enjoyable variation of this. Some fresh cilantro and maybe a bit of sour cream added to the chipotle version might be nice, too; although, I didn't try it that way. Just thinking of ideas, since I have so much of this left over!
