    Step 1

    Supplies

    Step 2

    Chop the onions and celery into to even pieces.

    Step 3

    Add the onions, celery, and a tbsp of olive oil to a large pot. Cook the vegetables on Med-Low until they are translucent. Stir regularly making sure NOT to brown!

    Step 4

    While your onions and celery are cooking get the following ready to add: Tomatoes, Chipotle Peppers, and Vegetable Stock

    Step 5

    When your onions and celery are translucent add your 3 cans of tomatoes and 32oz of vegetable stock.

    Step 6

    Be careful when adding your chipotle peppers. For a mild heat I recommend only adding 2 small peppers or 1 large pepper. The more peppers you add (coated in adobo sauce) the spicier your soup!

    Step 7

    Once your soup starts to simmer add just enough flour to thicken your soup. I usually add 1-3 tablespoons. Use a sifter when adding your flour to avoid clumps!

    Step 8

    After adding your flour cook on Med-Low for 10-15 minutes. This is to cook your tomatoes and flour.

    Step 9

    Once the tomatoes are soft (10-15 min) use a stick blender or stand blender to pure the soup. For a smoother consistency blend the soup while it is still hot, but be careful not to burn yourself.

    Step 10

    If using a stand blender, blend in small batches, and transfer blended soup to a separate large bowl. Be sure not to fill blender over 2/3 full.

    Step 11

    If using a stick-blender be sure to remove the pot from the heat source, and that the cord dose not hang over the stove.

    Step 12

    After pureeing the soup add the following : 1/2 tsp (or more) of cinnamon, 1 tbsp (or more) of molasses , and 1/2 cup (or more) of cream. Remember to taste the soup and adjust ingredients as needed.

    Step 13

    If you want to add more heat to your soup just add a little bit of the Adobo sauce. Be careful to only add a few drops at a time, since the sauce is very hot!!

    Step 14

    Once you like the taste of your soup garnish and serve! Enjoy!
