How To Prepare:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

  3. Place onions, chiles, garlic, carrots, celery, tomatoes, and jalapeno in a shallow baking dish with bacon fat or coconut oil. Top with cumin, coriander, sea salt, and fresh ground black pepper. Roast in the oven for about 45 minutes or until veggies begin to soften, tossing after 10 minutes to coat veggies in fat.

Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Wash and chop cilantro. Peel and dice avocado and cut lime into wedges for garnish.
  6. Ladle soup into shallow bowls and top with cilantro and avocado.
