Soup season is upon us and I’m all for it: versatile, nutritious and affordable – bring on the soup! One reason I love soup so much is because you can cook once and enjoy it for several days or freeze it for another day weeks later.

Additionally, as a mom of two growing boys, I love how easy it is to pack three or more servings of vegetables into every bowl. Case in point: this Southwest Chipotle Vegetable Soup is chock full of carrots, celery, zucchini and our favorite Little Potato Company creamer potatoes.

Spicy Chipotle Vegetable Soup Recipe

To keep it mild, simply scrape out the seeds in the chipotle peppers before mincing. Like it spicy? Garnish with jalapeño before serving. We love to add creamy avocado and shredded cabbage for texture as well. Tortilla chips wouldn’t hurt either.. just sayin’.

Your spoon is waiting.
