Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Cook and stir onion in butter until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour chicken broth over onions and bring to a boil.
  4. Stir in asparagus and potato; cover and cook until asparagus spears are tender, about 8 minutes.
  5. Mix in jalapeno pepper.
  6. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot.
  7. Stir in heavy cream.
  8. Season with salt, black pepper and hot sauce.

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.

Loved it! Wasn't stringy at all, just need to blend it down really well. Added some garlic because I love it, but even with out it I'm sure it would taste amazing!

Loved it! We added cooked asparagus for another layer of texture. Although it tastes wonderful, you can eat a bigger bowl with a little something to chew in there. We added a Sriracha for heat, as the jalapeno did not have any, but it indeed added a nice flavor. We added the cilantro as suggested in another comment and loved it.

I've already rated this recipe a 5***** but wanted to edit & couldn't figure ot how to do that ! I did not add the cream at all & the soup was delicious without it. So I may need to change the name !

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 :)
