Recipe for Creamy Habanero & Tomato Soup:
Ingredients:

  • 3Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ a habanero pepper, seeds discarded, minced
  • 1Tbsp tomato paste
  • 2tsp paprika
  • ½tsp salt
  • 1 can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1½tsp light brown sugar

  • Add the tomato paste, stir & cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the salt, paprika, tomatoes, water & sugar. (Break up the whole tomatoes slightly with a wooden spoon.)
  • Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover the soup & reduce to a simmer. Cook for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the soup from the heat & allow it to cool slightly. Purée in a blender until smooth.
  • Stir in the cream. Add a pinch of salt to taste.
  • Re-heat the soup in the pot until warmed through. Serve hot with tortillas or quesadillas!

  • Snap off your "chocolate" blocks. Space them as shown on the side of the box.
  • Bury just below the soil surface, cover and water every 3 - 4 days until seedlings peep out.
