I think I'm going to need that recipe for jalapeno bisque. Pretty please.

The lady who does the blog uses some exotic things which are easily replaced with more common, everyday things. e.g. olive oil for grapeseed oil or a regular blender does just fine over a blendtec. Tomato soup recipe is also on there.

This looks fabulous. Thanks. I've been on a serious heat kick lately (maybe the weather? ]:) ), and going vegan is a nice thing to do in the summer when there is such good produce available. I hope it's still tasty without the cilantro.

I'm sure it will be fine sans cilantro. I know people who get a sour face upon eating fresh cilantro. Once you make it, do let me know how you like it. I mentioned to my spouse this weekend that I wanted to make this for the 4th!

Speaking of "heat kicks," I've been addicted lately to a minimalist version of huevos rancheros with homemade salsa fresca. It couldn't be easier:

Chop some onion (I use about 1/3 to 1/2 of a medium white onion), add a chopped fresh tomato or two, one small clove of garlic, fresh hot peppers to taste (I chop up some Habañero, using it sparingly), salt, pepper, and a little splash of oil and vinegar. Add cilantro if you like it. That's your fresh salsa.

Grate a little fresh cheese -- queso fresco is traditional but if you can't get that any fairly bland white cheese will do: mozzarella, Petit Basque, probably even La Vache qui Rit.

Fry a couple of eggs (sprinkle with salt and pepper while cooking, maybe a little chopped fresh oregano) and warm a couple of small corn tortillas.

Sprinkle the cheese over the tortillas and top each tortilla with a fried egg, then add some of the salsa on top.

I often make these for lunch, and they're really delicious. Start to finish takes about 15 minutes.
