Poblano pepper soup

Speaking of poblano peppers, I kind of see them as an in-between of jalapenos and bell peppers.

You’ll not feel too much heat from them, just a smidgen. But, boy oh boy, they are full of flavor and perfect for that one-pot meal that saves time. Who needs more dishes in the middle of the week?

Creamy Chicken and Poblano Soup

How do I make a creamy pepper soup?

It’s a combo of the cream cheese and half and half.

I find that sometimes using heavy cream can just be too much cream.

You’ll want to still taste the full flavor of the chicken, broccoli and riced cauliflower… not just cream.

If you’re a big fan of poultry seasoning, feel free to add that in as well for that extra vibrance. At the base of this soup, you’ll have a nice poblano cream sauce recipe (even without the chicken added).

The perfect creamy chicken poblano detox soup….

If you’ve been sick, needing some extra comfort food or in need of some veggie-love, this low-carb poblano chowder is for you.

A delicious cream of poblano soup when you’re feeling blah.

Confession: I have a love-hate relationship with cauliflower.

While I do not think they taste like potatoes, I do believe they can add a special something to soups and stir-fry, if seasoned well.
