Nine Pepper Soup

by Permanent Posies on January 30, 2012

I promise that this is not as hot as it sounds.  I wasn’t really intending to put so many peppers in it…really.  It just sort of happened.  My goal was a good vegetable and chicken soup…….I opened the refrigerator and started pulling stuff out….chopping stuff up.  And….I was not disappointed.  Threw a little cheese and some tortilla strips on top….and I had the best tasting tortilla soup.  My tortilla strips came from HEB and they were free….otherwise, just chips would do.


Nine Pepper Soup
Recipe type: Soup
Author: Susan Root Merritt
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/3 large onion
  • 1 large jalepeno
  • 1 mini yellow bell pepper (or 1/4 large one)
  • 1 mini orange bell pepper
  • 1 mini red bell pepper
  • 1 poblano pepper
  • 1/2 cup Verde Sauce (canned or jarred)
  • 1 can tomatoes with chiles
  • 1/2 cup Chipotle Salsa
  • 1 qt chicken broth
  • 1 qt water
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 1small zucchini
  • 6 small garlic pods (or 3 larger ones)
  • 1/2 rotisserie chicken
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • salt
  • 1 tsp oil
  2. Chop all the bell peppers, onion, poblano, carrots, celery, zucchini, and garlic pods.
  3. Saute the carrots, onions, celery, and zucchini in 1/2 tsp oil first until tender. Set aside.
  4. Saute the peppers in the rest of the oil, adding the spinach leaves and garlic in after they are almost tender. Stir and cook until the spinach is wilted.
  5. Boil the rotisserie chicken in water for about 30 minutes to make a good broth. You can use raw chicken for a richer broth but I always use leftover chicken for soups.
  6. De-bone the chicken.
  7. Add all the ingredients together and cook until the flavors are melded nicely….maybe 30 minutes.

I saw the name of the recipe, Nine pepper soup. Man that sounds wonderful. Just like home Austin TX. But now I scroll down and see an HEB bag! WOW now I know this blog is coming from home. I’m a miss placed Texan and missing home. But you go where the job is. Thank you Lord for that. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to see what comes next.
