Lately all I have been talking about is how excited I am for warmer weather – barbecues, sandy toes, slushy drinks…you name a warm weather cliche, I am excited for it. Except for bathing suits and soup. Yes. Soup. Sometimes there is nothing better than a big bowl of warm comforting soup and I am already bummed about saying good-bye to soup for the next few months. So for one last hurrah, I made a simple twist on a classic soup. Creamy tomato soup spiked with chipotle peppers and cream cheese for a creamy spicy take on a classic. Make up a big batch and enjoy before it’s too hot for soup.

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the celery, carrots, and onion. Cook for 8-10 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and chipotle peppers and cook for 2 more minutes. You could skip this step but I prefer the flavor when the vegetables are sauteed first.
  2. Add to the slow cooker. Add the canned tomatoes, vegetable broth, bay leaf, oregano, coriander, and cumin.
  3. Cook on low for 4 hours. Then carefully blend using an immersion blender or by blending in batches.
  4. Return to slow cooker and add the cream cheese and milk. Cook for 30 more minutes and season with salt and pepper.
