DIRECTIONS

  • Roast the poblano over an open flame turning regularly for about 5 minutes, or until blackened all over. This can also be done under the broiler for 10 minutes. Make sure the chile is about 4 inches from the flame. Cover the poblano chile with a towel once rit has finished roasting.
  • Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic about 8 minutes, or until onion starts to look translucent. Press the onion and garlic against the side of the pan with a slotted spoon trying to leave a fair amount of oil in the pan. Set the pan aside for later use.
  • Transfer the garlic and onion to a food processor or blender. Add the corn, cornstarch and 1 1/2 cups milk. Puree.
  • Strain the soup through a medium mesh strainer into the saucepan. Heat over medium and whisk often as the soup comes to a simmer.
  • Once the chile is cool enough to handle, rub off the blackened skin. Pull out the stem and seeds. Rinse to remove any remaining bits. Cut into a 1/4 inch dice and stir into soup along with the chicken and remaining milk.
  • Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Season with salt to taste and serve garnished with cilantro.
