Roasted Green Chile Soup
Here in the southwest, fall at the farmers market means the smell of green chilies roasting. And, growing up in wester New York, this tasty treat is new to my kitchen. What does one do, while figure out a way to turn it into a soup as the weather shifts to brisk. I hope you enjoy this creation.
Time saving tip: At some point I heard the saying, “frozen soup in your freezer is true security”. Double or even triple this batch and stock up for quick and easy dinners on busy days.
Does soup just not cut it for dinner? Add a whole grain to the soup, like quinoa or brown rice, to make a hearty dish. Or serve with a baked sweet potato, or side salad.
