INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 large yellow onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 pound carrots, peeled and diced

1 canned chipotle pepper (in adobo sauce), minced

1 tablespoon adobo sauce (from canned chipotle peppers)

INSTRUCTIONS

In a large, deep pot over medium, heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook until lightly browned, about 10 to 12 minutes. Add the carrots, potatoes and chipotle. Cook for 5 minutes, then add the adobo sauce and broth. Bring to a simmer and cook until the carrots and potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.

Working in batches, transfer the soup to a blender and puree until smooth (or use an immersion blender). Return the soup to the pot and return to a simmer. Stir in the cream and season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with sliced scallions.
