Spicy Soup Recipes
Spicy Avocado-Cucumber Soup
This tangy, luscious soup is an excellent make-ahead dish: Simply puree everything except the garnish, then chill. For a milder version, scale back on the serrano.
Spicy Chickpea Soup
Chickpeas are used as the base for this Indian-flavored creamy (though cream-free) soup, which is prepared by first pureeing it, then simmering it, to save time.
Spicy Grain Soup
Based on a brothy tortilla soup, this fiery, substantial soup is full of nutty-tasting barley, brown rice and bulgur, creating a dish that's high in fiber.
Spicy Red Lentil Coconut Soup with Shrimp Dumplings
Red lentils make a hearty addition to this surprisingly tangy and fragrant Asian-style coconut soup.
Spicy Udon and Clam Soup
This dish is based on the classic Korean noodle soup kal gooksu (or "knife noodles," so named because the handmade dough is cut with a knife).
Spicy Kale Chowder with Andouille Sausage
This hearty soup uses spicy smoked andouille sausage that is traditionally added to Louisiana specialties like gumbo and jambalaya.
Spicy Black Bean Soup with Cilantro Crema
For a healthier version of this crema, try using nonfat Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream.
Spicy Crab Bisque
Tanya Holland's decadent crab bisque is studded with plenty of lump crabmeat. Thanks to a hit of cayenne and Tabasco, the soup has a sneaky heat.
Spiced Beef Pho with Sesame-Chile Oil
The rice vermicelli soup pho is a staple all over Vietnam and this spicy beef version is the specialty of Hanoi.
Spicy Turkey Posole
Posole is a hearty Mexican soup or stew made with hominy (dried corn kernels with the hull and germ removed) and pork or poultry.
