Beauty I'd Always Missed

White Chicken Chile Lime Soup
This tangy concoction was of my own invention, inspired by my love of creamy and tangy tasting green things, like roasted poblano peppers. cilantro, and lime.
After all we've been through and continue to go through, in the world, thank goodness, that goodness and beauty are always working hard, tapping us on our shoulders and saying, hey, look at me, see me!  The time is now! This will never be again.  Do something good right now!

A day off walk around the hood gave me inspiration for a warming Fall soup. 
White Chile Lime Soup

Onions, chopped
garlic, chopped
poblano peppers (fire roasted stovetop, peeled and diced)
bell peppers, chopped
jalapeno peppers freshly chopped
shredded cooked chicken
sausage (optional)
Slurry of sour cream, chicken stock & corn starch
Chicken Stock
Cilantro - one bunch, chop up stems, separate from leaves.
Green Onion - chopped
Sour Cream for garnish

Saute the onions and garlic, then add the chopped peppers (add a lot, these are the main star of the soup).  If adding sausage, add now and cook through until it begins to get crispy, before adding the cold chicken stock.  Pick up all bits with wood spoon off the bottom of pan and stir into broth.  Add shredded chicken and all the cilantro stems chopped from the bunch (reserve the leaves).  Bring to boil and cook for 20 minutes.  In a cup, add a big dollop of sour cream, cornstarch and 1 tablespoon of chicken bouillon and stir it into soup slowly. Let cook another 10 minutes to thicken.  In the last five, add the chopped green onions, squeeze a whole juicy lime in and add all the cilantro leaves.

Garnish how you see fit!  I like more lime, green onions and white onion finely chopped.
Eat, relax and be grateful
