Since coming back from traveling, I’ve been seeking nothing but spice and comfort… and laying in bed under layers and layers of blankets. And whilst on the topic of spice and comfort, the most delicious and pleasing soups to me are hearty and creamy. No sophistication necessary. Though the addition of a bit of beer and dark chocolate may just be perfect enough to finalize a much needed stew after two weeks of galavanting through England and Scotland during this brisk time of the year.The one thing I missed most when I was away now and every single time I’ve left the country, was something Mexican. The smokey heat of the chipotle, creaminess from the chocolate, earthiness of the cumin and sweetness of the peppers-I could not ask for the most perfect way to greet me back home.
