Vegan Roasted Poblano Pepper and Corn Chowder

Vegan Roasted Poblano Pepper and Corn Chowder

When most people talk about Mexico it’s usually to discuss their recent vacation in one of the AMAZING beaches and how they drank cocktails all day under the hot sun. However, certain times of year Mexico can get a little chilly, contrary to the stereotype.

I live in Oaxaca, Mexico where today it’s pretty dreary weather to be honest. It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to stay inside and curl up with some blankets and hot coco…or wine!..Just me?

Anyway….

This cold weather calls for something cozy. Soup, chowder, chili. Any of those would be EXCELLENT for today’s weather. So using local ingredients, I whipped up a poblano chowder, which could also easily be blended into cream of poblano.

It turned out so creamy with just the right amount of chunkiness. It’s vegan but my husband had no idea and scarfed down a huge bowl. To get him to eat vegetables is a win in itself right there!

I wanted the chowder to have a bit of a smoke so I roasted the poblano peppers in the oven for about ten minutes each side until they were good and chard all around. This process could also be done on a stove top, but I prefer just to stick it in the oven and forget about it while the other ingredients cook on the stove.

This tasty chowder took me about 20 minutes to make and was just what I needed for the gloomy weather.

Pair with warm tortillas or crispy tostadas for an extra crunch.
