I found this very yummy soup whilst looking for recipes to use smoked paprika. I haven't been able to buy it here in town, so I'm pretty excited. The original recipe has more chillies if you wish.Prep time includes blackening, sweating and peeling those peppers! This would be a good vegetarian recipe made with veggie stock, or even vegan if you omit the cream too.
