This soup was very tasty. The only change I made was to roast the poblano before chopping it. It was delicious!

Nice soup. Had the right amount of spice. Next time I will use about 1 cup or so less water. The soup was very good but a little watery. Thanks Rose of Sharon for soup that will be on list to make again. Made for My Three Chefs.
