YUM!! This soup is delicious and easy to make. I’d definitely recommend an immersion blender rather than a standard blender, but I made do with what I had. I didn’t add any heavy cream because I liked the consistency without it. Next time I may add just a little less red pepper. This will definitely become a regular in our house!
