Spicy Roasted Vegetable Soup



Spicy Roasted Vegetable Soup
Lightly roasting the vegetables provides this soup with a robust flavor.
Ingredients:
1   medium red bell pepper
1   medium onion
1   can (14 oz) petite diced tomatoes
1   cup packed fresh cilantro
2   garlic cloves, peeled
1   chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
1/2   tsp salt
1   large red potato (about 1 cup diced)
2   medium zucchini or yellow squash (about 3 cups diced)
1   carton (32 ounces) vegetable broth
1   can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
   Lime wedges, warm tortillas and sour cream (optional)
Directions:
  1. Preheat broiler. Chop bell pepper and onion into 2-in. pieces. Place onto Medium Sheet Pan; spray with oil. Broil 5-7 minutes or until lightly charred and softened. Place roasted vegetables, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, chipotle pepper and salt into blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Meanwhile, dice potato and zucchini into 1/2-in. cubes. Place potato and broth into (4-qt.) Casserole. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; cook 6-8 minutes or until potato begins to soften.
