the soup this week is a soup that makes everything better, when you are sick is helps you feel better or when you are a little down...it picks you up. Its a snuggle up with me and have a bowl after a long day or on a cold night...make a pot and keep it around...share with friends who make you laugh kinda soup!

all better soup
in your soup pot:
4 cups of water
3 roma tomatoes
3 garlic cloves
1 white onion, large diced
2 chipotle peppers + 3 T adobo sauce
(from chipotle can)
2 bay leaves
bring this all to a boil and cook until tomatoes are mushy and onions are cooked. 
(if you want it less spicy remove chipoltes after cooking)
now place all contents of your pot minus 1/2 the water, and blend until smooth
then put back in sauce pot with the rest of the water 

add 1 can diced tomatoes
2 russet potatoes, diced
 cook until potatoes are done 
then add:
1 zucchini, in 1" strips
1 yellow squash, in 1" strips
1 white onion, diced
2 lg. portobellos, diced
1/2 cilantro, chopped
1 c. whole (41-50) small shrimp
salt to taste
(i buy contessa)
simmer till everything is fully cooked.
Then grab a bowl, squeeze a lime in it, and enjoy!

This soup can wipe the blues away from any day, its delicious...and nutritious!

I really hope you enjoy this soup...it so easy, super fast, and just good for the soul!
