Chicken Poblano Soup

This is a super yummy soup. I have made it a couple of times and everyone loves it. I serve it with Tortilla scoops. Make sure to plan ahead and have your cooked rice ready. Enjoy!

1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon chicken bouillon
1/2 teaspoon thyme
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cups diced or chopped carrots
3 poblano peppers, veined, seeded, and diced
3 quarts chicken broth
1 rotisserie chicken
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) of butter, melted
1/4 cup flour

1 small bag frozen corn

2 cups cooked rice

Pour olive oil in a large saucepan. Mix the cumin, chicken bouillon, thyme, salt, and pepper in the oil. Pull the cilantro leaves off the stems and chop. Add the cilantro, garlic, onions, carrots, and poblano chilies to the oil and spices. Stir and cook until soft. Add the chicken broth. Next, make a roux with the butter and flour and add to the soup. Remove skin from roasted chicken and discard. Tear the chicken into pieces and add to the soup. Stir in cooked rice and frozen corn; simmer until warm. Serve and enjoy.

Note: The original recipe is above, I changed a few things when I made it. I doubled the cilantro, used brown rice instead of white, you couldn't even tell and so much better for you, andI doubled the roux, because I wanted it thicker like a chowder
