Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar(TM) Diet
by Peter H. Gott

Smoky chipotle chilies provide complexity to this rich soup. Using evaporated milk in place of cream keeps it low-fat without sacrificing flavor.
Serves 4 to 6.

• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 medium onion, chopped
• 2 medium carrots, chopped
• 2 medium stalks celery, chopped
• 3 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 4 cups chicken broth
• 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes, with juice
• 2-4 medium chopped canned chipotle chilies en adobo*, seeds removed
• 1 15-ounce can corn, drained
• 1 5-ounce can evaporated milk
• Juice of 2 limes
• 1 medium avocado, diced
• 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Heat olive oil in heavy large pot over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, celery, garlic, and oregano. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables soften, about 10 minutes. Add salt, chicken broth, tomatoes with their juice, and chipotles. Raise heat to medium-high and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, about 30 minutes.

Puree soup in a food processor (in batches), or using an immersion blender until smooth. Return soup to pot, stir in corn and evaporated milk, and raise heat again to medium-high. Cook until soup is hot and close to boiling, about 5 minutes. Stir in lime juice. Serve soup topped with chopped cilantro and avocado.

*Canned chipotle chilies in adobo sauce (“Chipotles En Adobo”) are available at Latin American markets and many supermarkets.
