fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and halved crosswise
Idaho potato, peeled and diced
jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
salt and ground black pepper to taste
hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®), or to taste
This is a fantastic recipe..I love the slight hint of jalapeno. I made one minor change to the recipe, added some cilantro and it added a little bit more flavor and color to the soup! Thanks for the recipe.
Mr. LTH really enjoyed this soup. I, too, enjoyed the flavor, but the texture was a bit off. There were strings and strings of asparagus that were less than appetizing. At the last minute, I realized I had light cream, not heavy, so I used that instead. I followed the rest of the recipe as written. This is definately worth giving a try (the jalaps provide a nice kick!). THANKS for the recipe, Scott M!
It was great. The jalapeno I used was pretty low on the scoville scale, so it wasn't spicy, but was still very very tasty.
I made ahead of time, so didn't add cream until just prior to serving. Wife's bowl was cleaned with bread :)
