Roasted Pepper Gazpacho

This Mexican style Gazpacho with roasted bell peppers, poblano and jalapeno has just the right amount of spice to make this classic chilled soup so delicious!

Gazpacho is a chilled soup that originated in Spain. Gazpacho is now popular in many Latin American countries, including Mexico.

What is Gazpacho?

Classic Spanish Gazpacho is a combination of onion, garlic, tomatoes, celery and cucumber with a little vinegar.

Mexican style gazpacho’s generally start with this base but chillies are added for more spice.

Modern gazpacho recipes can be based on a wide variety of vegetables or even fruits. Fruit Gazpacho is both sweet and savory at the same time and is so delicious.

Styles of Gazpacho

There are two different methods of making gazpacho. Either all of the ingredients are completely pureed for a smooth soup that is easy to drink up, even without a spoon.

You can also make your gazpacho chunky, leaving some of the vegetables diced and adding them after the rest of the soup has been pureed.

There is no right or wrong way to make gazpacho. It is simply a matter of preference how you prefer your gazpacho.

This smooth Mexican style Gazpacho I completely pureed, however, when I make the Fruit Gazpacho, referenced above, that one is chunky style!

Accompaniments

In Spain, Gazpacho is generally accompanied by crusty bread with olive oil. In Mexico, tortilla chips or even warm tortillas are the usual accompaniments to Gazpacho.

I like to garnish this Roasted Pepper Gazpacho with strips of fried corn tortillas and avocado.

    I love nothing better than a good gazpacho on a hot day or a warm summer evening. This roasted pepper version looks fabulous–especially with that topping. 😉 Thanks for sharing this with Souper Sundays!
