A new approach to plain old chicken soup. This is simmered for 4 hours for all the flavors of the vegetables to meld and flavor the broth. Then cream is added with a roux to thicken. Poblano peppers are added, but only for the last hour of cooking so that they still have some crunch to them and retain most of their flavor.
The thick creamy soup, seasoned with the the bright green peppers and the hot sauce is wonderful on their own. But add the sweet veggie Sofrito and Rotisserie Chicken and it's over the top!
In a large Saute Pan, heat the Olive Oil.
Add the Carrots, Celery and Onion to make a large size dice Sofrito.
Saute for 5 minutes, until the onion starts to turn translucent.
Add the Cilantro and Garlic and saute for another minute.
Move the Sofrito to a large Crock Pot, set on Low heat.
Add the Chicken Stock, Cumin, Oregano, Thyme; stir and cover and cook on low for 4 hours.
After 4 hours, Add the Heavy Cream and Poblano Peppers.
Make a Roux to thicken the soup: In a heavy bottomed sauce pan, melt the butter over low to medium heat. Add the flour and stir constantly for about 5 minutes. Do not allow the flour to burn; keep stirring. Add the roux to the crock pot.
Add the chicken and the hot sauce to the pot.
Cook on high, covered for 1 more hour, stirring occasionally.
Serve hot with cornbread, if desired.
