Prepare that bread bowl for something spicier!

Move over cream of mushroom, there’s something spicier in town. If you love the heat, cream of jalapeño soup leaves you feeling good: it fills you up and satisfies that spice craving all in one. It’s a chili lover’s comfort food, no doubt, and it’s very easy to make.

Is jalapeño not spicy enough? You can swap in serrano peppers for a heat bump if you prefer.
