5 cloves garlic, peeled
10 Roma tomatoes, cored and quartered
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion,diced
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
8 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 dried chipotle pepper, stemmed and seeded (optional)

1. Puree the garlic and tomatoes in a blender until smooth. Heat the olive oil in a large stockpot over low heat. Add the onion, salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until pale brown and caramelized, about 10 minutes. Stir in the tomato puree and cook 10 minutes longer, stirring frequently.
