This is a simple cream soup base livened up with onion, carrot, bell and jalapeno peppers and topped with cheese. Very yummy and you can control the heat, if you like by reducing the amount of jalapeno. This amount we find nicely spicy but not hot. It presents beautifully with the flecks of orange and green against the cream soup base. I know it's not in any way a low fat recipe but in this case, it's worth every fat gram. The recipe came from Chef Sean Berry at the Guadalupe River Club in Kerrville, Texas, according to the October 1985 edition of Bon Appetit magazine.
