  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft and translucent, approximately 6-7 minutes. Add cumin, chili powder and salt. Stir to combine. Add chipotle peppers and Adobo sauce and stir.
  2. Stir in tomatoes and chicken broth; bring to a simmer over low heat. Cover, and simmer 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Cool mixture slightly. Process with an immersion blender until smooth. Stir in heavy cream. Adjust salt if necessary. Slowly heat bisque but do not boil. Serve immediately.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you can't find the Fire Roasted Tomatoes with Garlic variety, substitute one can of regular Fire Roasted Tomatoes and add 1 clove of garlic in with the onion.
  • You may use a blender instead of an immersion blender to puree the soup; process in two batches if necessary.

Super easy and tasty, it's probably 4-1/2 stars in my book. The chipotle is brilliant; I would actually add more. I didn't realize that the recipe called for tomatoes with garlic, and garlic wo...

Absolutely delicious! I used almond milk instead of heavy cream, and while not as creamy, it is still wonderful. I only used one chipotle and that was perfect amount of spice for me. Topped wit...
