Instructions / directions

In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add celery, onions, carrots, jalapeƱos garlic and scallions and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the broth, salt, pepper. Bring to simmer.

In a small bowl, whisk cornstarch into two tbsp of water to form a slurry. Stir the cornstarch slurry into the broth and bring to a boil. Let the soup boil for about 2-3 minutes to thicken.
