  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.

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 ...

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...

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.

Great soup! Even my picky eaters loved it. I added a couple extra steps because I just can't bring myself to follow any recipe to the letter. First of all, strain the asparagus after blended. ...
