More Summertime Soup

I love trying new soup recipes and thankfully, I have a family and friends who don't mind being guinea pigs when it comes to trying something new.

A few weeks ago, I made this Spicy Watermelon Gazpacho Soup (recipe can be found here), with just a few changes -- I added a bit of chopped up onion and yellow bell pepper, and used a jalapeno pepper instead of a serrano pepper. I used my immersion blender to puree the watermelon, tomatoes, and cucumber, and then added the onions and peppers for a little crunch. I didn't bother with a sieve. And since I like a few chunks in my soups, I added another cup or two of watermelon pieces.

Oh, yes, and a little Sriracha sauce for extra kick...that never hurts.
