    I often find Blendtec recipes rather bland, but this has to be one of the BEST soups we’ve ever made: super tasty and healthy. Yes, it does take a bit of extra work, but every minute was worth it. Thank you Blendtec!!

    This recipe was really good! I added/substituted almond milk, frozen cauliflower florets, 2oz of jalapeño cheddar cheese and minced garlic. We will definitely be having this again!

  • Scott

    Soup was excellent… only deviations was whole milk and a teaspoon of adobo.

    I rarely pre-cook ingredients. Everything has come out great.
