Slice onion, garlic and jalapenos and grill in skillet with 2 teaspoon butter.

Cube Zucchini, squash, tomato and bring pot to a rapid boil, then turn to medium high and add spinach, green beans, parsley or cilantro, all seasonings, lemon juice and the ingredients you grilled in skillet.

Leave on medium high stirring occasionally for about 20 min.

Simmer for an 1½ hours (optional-I like everything to soak up the flavors of one another).

Add heavy whipping cream a little at a time while creaming with an immersion blender.

*Serve hot and top with shredded Monterey jack cheese and cooked bacon pieces, with grilled zucchini and squash.
