Chayote and roasted poblano soup
Makes 4 servings

For this recipe you will need:

  • 2 chayotes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 large poblano pepper, roasted and cleaned (click here for a video on how to roast peppers)
  • 1/2 onion
  • fresh cilantro (optional)
  • salt and pepper
  • oregano
  • parsley flakes
  • cream, green onions and queso fresco for garnish

Note: I don’t include the amounts for spices because they should be used according to taste.


  1. Clean chayotes (click here for a video on how to prepare chayotes) and boil them in chicken broth until tender.
  2. Blend chayotes, poblano pepper, onion and cilantro with about 1 cup of the chicken broth until smooth.
  3. Return to the pot with the rest of the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to slow, add seasoning and spices and cover.
  4. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the soup thickens. Stir constantly.
  5. Serve and garnish with cream, green onions and queso fresco.

There you have it, a spicy soup that will bring you back to life in this freezing weather.

¬°Buen provecho!
