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.
  9. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

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.
