Number of Servings: 12


    * 6 cups vegetable broth
    * 1 canned diced tomato
    * 2 cups fresh green beans
    * 3 cloves garlic, minced
    * 2 small zucchini
    * 1 cup tomatillo, cubed
    * 1/2 medium poblano chili pepper, chopped
    * 1 medium jalapeƱo, membranes and seeds removed, minced
    * 1 medium red onion, chopped
    * 1 green pepper, chopped
    * 1/2 teaspoon cumin
    * 1 teaspoon fresh oregano
    * 2 roasted red peppers packed in water
    * 1 tablespoon chipotle peppers in adobo sauce ( be careful, they are hot!!!! I used only a scant teaspoon)
    * Salt to taste
    * 2 tablespoons lime juice (from 2 limes)
    * 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


Heat a large pot or Dutch oven on MEDIUM HIGH. Add the vegetables and spices (canned tomatoes through as oregano) as they're prepped. Add the broth when it's ready. Whiz the red peppers and chipotle pepper in a mini food processor and stir in. (I love mine that came with an immersion blender. Could you skip this step? Yes but do make sure to mash the chipotle pepper to distribute as finely as possible throughout the soup.) Cover and bring to a boil. (Because I used boiling water, the soup was just starting to boil when I added the last ingredients.) Once at a boil, partly uncover the soup, reduce the heat to maintain a slow simmer and simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir in salt, lime juice and cilantro. Serve immediately.

  • Incredible!

    Great soup derived from British (!) weight watchers. The tomatillo (2 med.) and chipotle (1 canned pepper) really made the dish. I forgot to add the canned red peppers and used Mexican canned tomatoes instead of lime and cilantro. The orig. recipe uses Spanish onions so probably great with vidalias. - 5/26/09

    Taste great. I had to redo the macros as there is some sodium from the veggies. If on a sodium restriction, you will have to redo recipe nutritional facts. - 3/28/19
