Spice Things Up! How to Make Easy Cream of Poblano Soup!

This creamy poblano soup is one of my favorites. If you want a heartier soup, you can top it with chunks of chicken, grilled shrimp or even chorizo. 

You'll need:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 poblano peppers, roasted, peeled, seeded and chopped (learn how to roast poblano peppers)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup diced carrots
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half 
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • toppings: shredded Monterey Jack cheese, diced red onion, cilantro leaves, tortilla strips or crushed tortilla chips 

Here's how to make it:

  1. Cook the poblano, onion and carrots in the butter until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the flour and cook another 2 minutes.
  3. Add water and chicken stock. Stir and simmer on low about 30 minutes.
  4. Puree with an immersion blender
  5. Add half-and-half, cilantro and salt. Heat through. Taste and adjust seasonings. 

Spoon into bowls and top with desired toppings.
