This recipe is fantastic. It's just pure magic (or science) how these flavors come together, even DH loves it! Although I had the fresh anaheim peppers, once I realized the recipe was going to have me roast them, I simply used the canned chopped chiles instead; otherwise, made as directed. Thanks, breezermom! Made for PRMR tag game.
What a yummy, heart warming soup. I can't get "real" peppers here in this Canadian culinary wasteland so I used the canned Ortega diced chili's and it was still delicious. Also, I used the tomato and a fat free sour cream with dried cilantro for garnish as there was no avocado in the house. It was a real treat with a square of chili cheese cornbread on the side. :D
This is an outstanding soup! So fresh, healthy and delicious. I didn't use the avocado garnish, otherwise made as directed and we loved this - thanks for sharing the recipe!
"This is amazing stuff!" was the consensus around the dinner table tonight. So many times DH will add extra seasoning (hot sauce or pepper) to a soup but this was so good he didn't add anything. The flavor of the broth was so complex - just a hint of onion, cloves and the smoky, spiciness of the chilies. We loved the thin broth yet the chunky veggies and chicken. Also, the garnishes were just perfect! I used poblano peppers because there were not anaheims in our store. This is one recipe that we will make again and again. Thanks breezermom :)
