Introduction

Fiery because it's spicy and fast - 10 minutes at dinner tonight. And I love the sweetness of the corn as a counterpoint to the heat.

Ingredients

Serves: 2

  • ½ medium onion (diced small)
  • 1 stick celery
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 17 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • 4 ounces green chile (canned)
  • 1 cup frozen sweetcorn kernels
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pinch of sugar
  • minced black pepper
  • sour cream (to taste)
  • 1 splash of vegetable oil
  • cilantro

Method

Fiery Tomato Soup is a community recipe submitted by Community and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Heat the oil over med-high heat, add the onion and celery. Saute just until browning on the edges, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, stir for a moment, then add the chilies, tomatoes, corn, water, sugar, and good grinding of black pepper.
  • Turn up the heat and let it bubble while you make a quesadilla or something else to accompany the soup. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  • After about 5 minutes it should have reduced to a more soupy consistency - add cilantro, taste it, and adjust flavorings. Ever so nice with a lager....
