Corn and Roast Poblano Soup

Roasting the poblano chilies to give them a richer, mellower, sweeter taste is one of the secrets to making this robust soup. The other secret is to steep the cumin seeds, bay leaves, rosemary and chipotle chilies in warm milk to infuse the milk with their flavors.

bland yet spicy
July 29, 2013
We made this recipe last night for the first time and ran into a bevy of problems. The first time around the milk curdled, and the second time we ended up with something akin to a chowder but without the creamy base.
Maybe it was because we used 2% milk instead of whole (although it isn't specified)? I don't know, it was a confusing combination of spicy heat and bland milk/water flavor.
I will probably not try this again as it didn't seem to show much promise in my hands, but a more capable cook might have better luck!

Flavorful Soup!
January 26, 2012
Roasted peppers are a part of Colorado cuisine. The soup had a very nice flavor of the roasted poblanos as well as the sweetcorn. The herbs and spices also shone through. And I was able to roast my poblanos while infusing the milk. Since this was the first time I made this soup, it took me approximately 1 hour 15 minutes to prep and cook . Will definitely make this again.
Pros: Yield, Impressive, Will Make Again

Sweet and a bit spicy!
September 25, 2011
This was very good. A small change, used 8 Anaheim chilies as that is what was in abundance at the farmers market and grilled them rather than broil. Otherwise made as directed. Served with beer cheese bread and salad with avocados and tomatoes. Makes a lot of yummy soup!
