Recipe by Sharon123

Just like the title says, this is sweet and creamy and spicy with chipotle and poblano peppers! So enjoy! Adapted from Donna Nordon, owner/chef of Cafe Terra Cotta in Tucson, Arizona. This will feed a crowd, so feel free to cut recipe in half!

Oh, this was so good! 5 stars all around - even my teens loved it, although one of them picked out all the peppers. :) For the onions, I used half sweet onion and half regular yellow onion. For the chiles, I used canned chipotles. After simmering for 30 minutes, they had added just the right amount of smoky goodness to the soup. I didn't use the garnish although next time I will; we served with quesadillas instead.
