Temperatures dropping, leaves are falling, I’m unconsciously adding layers to my outfits.

This can only mean one thing. It’s soup season!

And I’m getting festive because the whole month of October I’ll be SOUPING-IT-UP to kick the season off right. First plan of attack, this smoky beef and tomato soup.

Baby, let me prep you by saying this is not your grandma’s tomato soup. It’s bold and hearty and warms your soul to the core thanks to the addition of smoky chipotles in adobo.

There’s another very important element to this soup and all I have to say is WHERE’S THE BEEF?  (You do remember the granny chanting this in that old commercial, right, or am I aging myself?)

 

Well look no further because all the beef is right here in this soup. For this recipe I stocked up Laura’s Lean Ground Beef at Kroger (you can use their store locator to find a retailer nearest you). This brand is the best because its 100% grass-fed beef with no hormones or antibiotics added. My forever motto will always be, “start with good ingredients to yield even better results.” It’s not rocket science.

Not mention this Smoky Beef & Tomato soup recipe is easy peasy, as in, everything cooks in ONE-POT-EASY.

 

But most importantly it is DELICIOUS. With each slurp the spiciness and smokiness hits your palate from the tomato-rich broth packed with onion, garlic, dried herbs and fire roasted tomatoes. But the additional swirl of crema with cheese and croutons on top help to cool things off just in time.

Drop all the ingredients in a heavy pot (blend smooth if that’s your thing) and just like that you’ll be SOUPING-IT-UP with me all fall.

I think some buttery chunks of avocado would go well on top of this soup too but I didn’t get a chance to add any. I need someone try that out for me and report back.

Notes

This is a spicy soup so if you want to reduce the spice only use half the can of chipotles in adobo
When using a blending with warm liquids, you must hold the blender lid down with a kitchen towel to prevent the lid from popping up violently. Be careful and be sure the let soup cool before blending.

    1. Ooooh you caught me. I decided not to use red wine in the soup because frankly, it did need it. Instead, I poured it into my glass.
      – Cheers and I hope you enjoy the recipe.
