This cream made with Poblano peppers can be enjoyed in various ways. It is the perfect sauce for a pasta topped with a grilled chicken breast or the perfect topping for a nice fish filet served alongside grilled vegetables. Note that the level of spiciness will depend on the chiles you picked but if you prefer a more mild soup, you can control the heat by adding more milk.

How To Make creamy roasted poblano soup

  • 1
    Add all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • 2
    Pour contents into a medium pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 15-20 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Taste and adjust seasonings according to taste. Remove all seeds before blending the Poblano peppers by running them through cold water but only for a few seconds in order to maintain the charred flavor. Chicken bouillon gives this dish a distinct flavor. You can use salt instead but the flavor will be slightly different.
