 * Solero uses Solero’s roasted, canned peppers.
 
 Heat oil in stockpot. Add peppers, garlic and onion, and cook until onion
 is translucent. Add bay leaf, Creole seasoning, cumin, salt, lemon juice
 and Worcestershire. Add water and bring to a boil. Process in blender or
 food processor until smooth. Stir in cream and blend in blender again (may
 have to do in batches). Divide among 4 to 6 bowls, and garnish with corn
 and tortilla strips. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
