Chicken Poblano Soup

There's something about a warm bowl of homemade soup. It's hearty but not overly filling, it fills your kitchen with beautiful aromas all day, it's great for sharing with people and you can get creative with it. This soup is great in particular because each person can customize their own bowl with as much or as little toppings as they prefer.

This recipe was inspired by white chicken chili, which I had been craving for a while but couldn't seem to find canned hatch chiles. To improvise, I roasted poblanos and jalapeños to go for a similar flavor and it came together beautifully.
