Makes a huge pot. Not designed to be spicy hot. Most poblanos are mild to medium hot and provide a great flavor to the dish. I was making this for a lady who just had surgery so I did not want the soup to be too spicy. If you love the heat, add some finely diced jalapeno to bump it up. Great way to add lot's of colorful vegetables to your families diet. Start each meal with a bowl of soup and you have an easy way to add nutrition.

Loved this!!! I have made it several times... I sub Black Beans for the green beans and add jalepenos for that extra "zing"... I have also added diced chicken breast that have been pan seared the last time I prepared this soup... Its been a WINNER - everytime!
