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!
Made this before but somehow the recipe changed. No jalapeno or hot stuff added, just sautéed garlic with the onions and used an immersion blender.
Really enjoyed this recipe and so easy to prepare.
Made the following changes:
EVOO instead of butter.
Added 2 cloves Garlic.
Habanero instead of Jalapeno.. Ole'!
Lowfat milk and cornstarch instead of heavy cream.
Added asparagus tip in the end instead of pureeing them.
LOVED IT! Tweaked it just a bit though, adding 1 large jalapeño, sautéed with onion; added a little more potato so I could cut down on the cream, which I also cut by using half NF milk and half cream; skipped tobasco; added veggie seasoning to enhance flavor. Also, used a stick blender and creamed it all up right in the pot. Served with Asiago ciabatta croutons - YUM!
Loved this recipe! I am the only one in the house so I cut in half and used half and half instead of the cream.
I fixed this soup for a family at church, doubled the recipe and didn't use the jalapino pepper because I wasn't sure if they really liked spicy food. I wish I had tripled it and the next time I will add the pepper but even without it, it was wonderful and I cannot wait to make it again.
Delicious! I followed the recipe pretty closely, except I added two cloves of garlic with the onion and skipped the dairy. Served with fresh sourdough bread. Soooo good.
