There are certain kinds of food I could eat everyday during the winter. I love mac and cheese, warm stir fries, and soup- lots and lots of soup. Personally I think the soups I make are slightly more healthy than eating mac and cheese everyday but I still love my comfort food.
Yet I like soup that I can throw together fairly easily, not a long list of ingredients, and I don’t have to stir often. Give me a soup like that with some crusty bread and I will be content.
This soup is one of those. I made a roasted tomato soup a few weeks back but the flavor of the tomatoes weren’t quite right- by using canned tomatoes, I don’t have to worry about peels and this gives me reason to start canning this summer! Adding the feta and the chipotle add in an extra bit of pizazz to this soup.
Chiptole Tomato Soup
- 1 can 28oz whole peeled tomatoes
- 1 none chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
- 1/2 medium onion
- none salt and pepper
- 1/4-1/2 cup milk (or heavy cream)
- croutons and feta cheese for topping
- Pre-heat oven to 400˚. In an 8x8 pan combine the can of tomatoes, onions, and chipotle pepper*. Place in oven and cook for 40 minutes. Once tomatoes begin to brown, remove from the oven and pour into a pot. With an immersion blender, puree tomatoes (if no immersion blender, use a regular blender.) Add enough milk to bring to a consistency you like and re-heat the soup. Pour into the bowls and top with croutons and feta.
