Recipe from Oxmoor House

A little of this spicy soup goes a long way, so it's best when served as an appetizer soup. If you want to decrease the heat, seed the jalapeños.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped red onion (1 onion)
  • 1 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeño pepper (2 peppers)
