Poblano Pepper Soup

Roasted Poblano Soup

This is a recipe I was given by a private chef in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. He wrote down the ingredients with some very simple directions. I have since been able to replicate the soup, and it has become a favorite of our family.

  • Using your immersion blender, purée soup, until creamy.
  • Serve with sour cream and/or chopped cilantro.



No need for cream or flour in this soup. It's gluten free.
The immersion blender helps makes the soup creamy.  
Make sure you point the blade of the blender down or away from you.
