Soups and Stews
This soup recipe that I’m posting for September Recipe Round-Up is from my good friend Jody. You have got to trust a recipe from a cook who owns this refrigerator!!
Jody’s kitchen is in constant use with people at her table most every night of the week. If anyone in the world can get good use out of this wonderful refrigerator Jody can. The recipe is in her own words but the following pictures are from my Washington Kitchen where I tested the soup for the Round-Up.
3 T butter
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
freshly ground pepper to taste
1.5 cups of Pace Picante Sauce, whichever heat you like–I use medium
1 quart half and half
Saute the onion and garlic in the butter until soft, Stir in cumin and pepper. Set aside.
Warm picante sauce, but do not boil. Add onion mixture. Slowly stir in half and half; heat through; do not boil. Serve immediately. Serves 6-8.
Jody also includes this tip to make this soup for a crowd…
“The way I do this for a crowd is that I saute the onion and garlic ahead of time so that when party day comes, I just put everything in the crock pot together, letting it heat to below boiling while I’m doing other things. Very easy. I think I garnished with cilantro, but anything would work. I double this to serve 24 of my small bowls.”
Enjoy! Now head on over to Lux Venit to indulge in some more soups and stews.
