Chipotle Split Pea Soup



In a heavy bottomed soup pot over medium heat add the dried spices,

onions and garlic and saute for several minutes. Add the carrot and

celery and saute for several more minutes, then add the peas. Stir to

coat with the veggie/spice mixture then add the water or stock. Bring

to a boil for several minutes then cover and turn down heat to a

strong simmer. Cook for 30 minutes or until the peas are tender. Add

the bouillon cube and more water if needed and the chiles. Cook for 15

minutes more, then stir in the balsamic vinegar. Taste and adjust

seasonings. Top with fresh herbs if desired.
