Chile Relleno Soup, from House of Yumm (recipe here)
Go check out the pictures of this NOW. I’ll wait. Also, it opens in another window, so you won’t have a problem finding your way back here…
Are you back? Good. If you like chile rellenos, you will love this soup. I made a few changes – added 1 c zucchini to the soup to make it thicker/chunkier, used 1/2 c half & half instead of the heavy cream, used 3/4 c milk instead of 1 c, skipped the chile relleno topping entirely, used 1/4 c flour, and 1/2 c cilantro (chopped).
I did top this sometimes with cheese. Sometimes I left it off. (As I ate it through the week). It’s got a nice spiciness to it that’s very warming (and would make you feel better if you had a cold).
I’ll definitely make this one again – probably without the milk & half & half. Thicken with cauliflower, maybe, and continue to top with cheese. Guacamole, too! Yumm, indeed.
