Fire-Roasted Poblano Pepper and Corn Chowder

Presented by Swanson®.

fire-roasted-poblano-pepper-recipeFire-roasted poblano pepper and corn chowder is a wonderful soup to make. While this is slightly spicy, I find it a good way to warm up on cool fall day.

You can roast your peppers on the grill by simply washing them off and laying on a hot grill until the outer skin blisters and blackens, flip the peppers over and allow the other side of the pepper to blacken.

Remove the peppers once the skin turns black and let them cool enough to handle. Once the peppers have cooled to the touch they are ready to remove the outer skin from the peppers.


If you don't want to break out the grill, you can use the broiler in your oven. I simply roast the peppers on high until the skin blackens, and then I flip them over, and allow the other side of the pepper to blacken. Remove the outer skin when they have cooled.

This soup is very easy to put together; we are going to use poblano peppers, frozen sweet corn, onions, and Swanson's Cream Starter™. 

The cream starter will help us put together a flavorful soup in a pepper of no time. I like Swanson's New Cream Starter™ because it is full of flavor, and it makes my soup taste like it has been cooking for a long time.

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

When the skillet is hot add chicken medallions to the soup, lay chicken out evenly in the pan. Cook chicken through flipping over once the bottom is cooked through.
  2. Roast poblano pepper on a grill or under the broiler. Wash pepper and dry.
