"This soup is so fragrant and yummy! Chipotle chili adds a delicious smoky flavor, but the soup is mild in spice. This is my favorite soup; it is so easy to make, you must give it a try!"

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, and cook until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, basil, and sun-dried tomatoes; cook and stir until the garlic has softened, about 2 minutes more. Pour in the water along with the chipotle pepper, bay leaf, bouillon, and vinegar. Add the peas, and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Remove the soup from the heat, and discard the chipotle pepper and bay leaf. Carefully puree the soup until silky smooth in batches in a blender, or use an immersion blender right in the saucepan. Serve the soup with a sprinkle of Gruyere cheese and freshly ground black pepper.

Dried chipotles were an ingredient in another recipe I was making. I was unable to find them and bought a small can of chipotles in adobo instead. I found this recipe while looking for ways to...

i enjoyed this recipe time tho i should use fresh peas in the summer...i used sweet frozen peas and chipotle powder coz didn't have a real one...but i scaled it to two and ate it all...

I don't know what the reviewer above stated. The instructions for the peas are right there. Yum!

What about the peas?!? Not in the instructions!!

I had expected more depth of flavor than this delivered. Perhaps it was too much water in proportion to the other ingredients.

Wow is all I have to say. Period.

Very good soup. I doubled the pepper to add a bit more zing, and bumped up to 1/3 c Gruyere for creaminess. Good texture and flavor.

Very good, but I did not care for the cheese that the recipe called for. I think that I will use mozzarella cheese next time.
