Printer Friendly Version
Similar to French onion soup but with Mexican flavors. A rich tasting, satisfying whole meal soup.

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups sliced onions
  • 1 T flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 Anaheim chile peppers, roasted, peeled, seeded, coarsely chopped
  • 1 Jalapeno chile pepper, roasted, peeled, seeded, finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 5 cups chicken stock

  • 2 T lime juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Jack cheese
  • Salt to taste
Garnish:
  • Tortilla chips, 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • In a 4 or 5 quart saucepan, heat oil and butter. Add garlic and onions. Sauté slowly, stirring frequently over low heat for 25-35 minutes, or until onions are very soft and beginning to turn golden. Reduce heat, stir in flour, cumin, the chile peppers and the bell pepper, then cook stirring for 3 minutes longer. Add chicken stock and beer. Cover pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes. Turn off heat. Stir in lime juice, chopped cilantro and salt. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve hot and pass bowls of fresh crunchy tortilla chips and additional chopped cilantro leaves to go with the soup.
