Cream of Poblano Soup Recipe: A Quick Soup With a Hint of Attitude

This creamy poblano soup recipe is one of my favorites. It's simple to prepare and loaded with flavor. You won't be able to stop eating it.

If you want a heartier soup, you can top it with chunks of chicken, grilled shrimp or even chorizo. If you're feeding a big family, double the recipe.

Craving this today. Wish I had some poblanos. On my list for the next trip to the grocery store.
There's some good recipes are these updated can we substitute certain foods like maybe cheeses and use a different kind of milk or different or egg substitutes with some of the recipes some of the soups the mac and cheese the clam cakes the zucchini fritters is there some substitution list you could share with us thanks
Donna John
Hello! Most times it's fine to substitute any kind of milk. I use coconut milk, almond milk, evaporated milk, cream, etc., interchangeably. I have two vegan kids, so will get a tip published about egg substitutes for you. As for cheese, you can always switch that to your favorite cheese. I wouldn't switch feta for cheddar, cream cheese for Gruyere, but if the recipe calls for a hard shredded cheese, any hard shredded cheese you like the flavor of would work. For the zucchini fritters, you could definitely substitute grated yellow squash or other vegetable you can grate for the zucchini. Hope this helps! Rosseyes
