Aline’s Secret Soup Ingredients

There is one product I love adding to especially this veggie soup. However, it goes well with so many other soup recipes and spices up every bland soup.

Here comes the star: Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce!

The Mexican number one condiment! Chipotle peppers are smoke-dried jalapeño chili peppers. They are usually canned in adobo sauce, a sweet and smoky purée of tomato, some vinegar, garlic, and other spices. We use it all the time when visiting family in Mexico. 

Where do I buy it? You can buy Chipotle in Adobo Sauce in most major supermarkets in the Mexican or condiments isle, online, or in Mexican supermarkets if you have some nearby.

BUT, and here comes the BUT. It’s optional to add chipotle to this hearty vegetable soup. Try it out if you have it at home anyways, but don’t run to the store only for this ingredient. It’s totally ok to omit it, especially if you don’t like fiery food. 

If you don’t have chipotle at home but would like to add a little spiciness, use a few pinches of red pepper flakes instead.

Easy Vegetable Soup Recipe Variations

Back to the soup! This recipe is widely variable and is perfect to use up any vegetable leftovers. Make sure to always stick to the vegetable/fluid ratio! Apart from that, go with vegetables you have at home or love.

For each cup of chopped vegetables, use one cup fluid.

I do love to use: Potatoes, Tomatoes, Zucchini, and Cabbage. Homemade vegetable soup with cabbage is soooo tasty!

Also, it’s good to add in some starchy veggies such as potatoes if you like to enjoy this soup for dinner. 

Those vegetables go well with this recipe:

  • Potato
  • Sweet Potato
  • Tomato
  • Cabbage
  • Zucchini
  • Carrot
  • Celery
  • Leek
  • Onion
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • Green Beans

Make sure to chop all vegetables in small cubes of about the same size. It’s easier to eat the soup with small bites in it than with large chunks of vegetables.
