Chipotle Creamy Tomato Soup

A quick hearty soup that is creamy with kicks of chipotle chile. A great gluten-free recipe for a cool fall dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups diced onion
  • 2 14.5-ounce cans no-salt-added diced tomatoes (or home canned)
  • 1/2 15-ounce can no-salt-added navy beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium chipotle chile pepper
  • 2 teaspoons adobo sauce (from canned chipotle chiles)
  • 2 ounces light cream cheese, tub style, cut into small pieces (I used fat-free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fat-free half and half
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream

Instructions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large saucepan. Cook onion until beginning to lightly brown, about 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the tomatoes, beans, chipotle pepper, and sauce. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat, cover and simmer 25 minutes, or until onions are very tender; remove from heat.
  2. Working in batches, puree the tomato mixture in a blender (be sure to hold down lid). Return to saucepan. Whisk in the half-and-half and cream cheese. Place over medium heat and cook until heated through and cheese has melted. Remove from heat, stir in the salt and remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Serve topped with sour cream.

  1. Made this yesterday. It was the perfect lunch this soup + grilled cheese. I did a few changes like adding in some garlic, fire roasted tomatoes instead of regular ones, cutting back the cream and adding some water in, and one extra chipotle pepper. Didn’t make it too spicy. Next time I am going to double the batch and freeze it in 2 cup servings for lunches and easy dinners. Blogged about it here. Even though I changed it quite a bit. I did link it back to your original recipe. Love Love Love your website! http://stephaniesazkitchen.blogspot.com/2013/12/smoky-garlic-chipotle-tomato-soup.html

  2. Kathleen,
    I know it has been a couple weeks since you commented, but if you’re still trying to make this soup and freeze it, here is a suggestion. Make the large batch of soup and puree in the blender and then freeze that portion of the recipe in servings of four. Then when you take the soup out to re-heat, you can add the cream cheese and half and half to the soup, since those are the last steps of the recipe anyways.

    Hope this helps! I am going to try making a double recipe of this tomorrow and freezing the rest!

  3. This looks like a great recipe for the 12 pounds of Roma tomatoes I have in the deep freeze! Only problem is I would like to make a large batch of soup and then freeze in portions serving four. I’m concerned the cream ingredients will curdle when I reheat – any suggestions?

    1. Hi Heather – this sounds like a great recipe for the 12 pounds of Roma tomatoes in my deep freeze but I am concerned about making a big batch with the heavy cream and cream cheese and then re- freezing the finished product. I’m worried the creams will curdle whenI reheat-any suggestions?

  4. I am lactose intolerant and have celiacs. This soup looks delicious but do you have a possible suggestion for substituting the cream cheese and sour cream. I was possibly hemp milk (great as a cream substitute) what are your thoughts.

    1. If you’ve used hemp milk before with success, I bet it would be great. You could completely omit the cream cheese from any substitution as I don’t think it added that much to the soup – just my opinion. Let me know if you decide to make it using hemp milk…I would love to know how it worked out.
