Jalapeño Popper Soup

This soup is creamy, spicy, and so flavorful. It’s filled with veggies too. To me, it tastes like broccoli cheddar soup even though the base is cauliflower and it doesn’t contain any cheddar 🤷‍♀️. Either way, it’s AMAZING! Perfect to pair with wraps, sandwiches, salads, etc and great meal prep!
