I first tried the chunky vegetable, pictured to the left. When I read “chunky,” I envisioned large vegetable pieces with minimal broth. I was disappointed when I noticed relatively small vegetables pieces. The carrots pictured were the biggest vegetables in the soup!Definitely not what I would consider chunky.
However, like the other Amy’s soup, the vegetables were cooked well and contained a nice variety with tomatoes, carrots, green beans, corn, peas, spinach, and celery. The broth was seasoned well with a pleasant tomato flavor.
The second soup I tried was the Fire Roasted Southwestern Vegetable soup. I was impressed to see char marks on the corn, onion, and green peppers. This soup contains tomatoes, potatoes, corn, black beans, carrots, green bell peppers, and green chiles.
This soup is a bit spicy. I had to drink milk a couple times to calm down my mouth. With the chipotle peppers added, it is bound to be! I preferred this soup of the two.
Both soups are tasty, with good flavor, and a great mixture of vegetables. This would be perfect on a nice, cold, snowy day.
