There are soups and then there are soups. There isn’t anything that rivals this roasted bell pepper soup w/Serrano crème fraîche!
I like soup, I mean who doesn’t really like soup? But this soup is the one that I pull out when I’m trying to impress the pants of people, literally and figuratively. Didn’t think there was a soup that was good enough to talk a man out of his pants? Well there is. Then again, you can give an average man hot ham water and an oyster cracker and he’ll take his pants off. Perhaps this is not the best comparison, but the roasted bell pepper soup w/Serrano crème fraîche on the other hand is the best.
This soup is honestly amazing! I know I say that for so many of my recipes, but this has literally become my signature holiday soup. Thanksgiving or Christmas, whichever I’m hosting, this soup is always on the menu. It’s great for vegetarians, because you just swap chicken broth for vegetable. The nice part is the soup on it’s own isn’t spicy, so even if your guests can’t handle spice it works, and if they love spice you just put a larger dollop of the crème fraîche.
The soup is really rich and has a bold flavor. The Serrano crème fraîche is so fresh, light, and the kick of the Serrano pepper is just amazing! Be prepared to make a double batch of this because everyone will want seconds and the bell peppers shrink down to nothing, so it’s not a lot of soup by any means.
