  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack at about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Cut the peppers in half from top to bottom; remove the stem, seeds, and ribs, then place the peppers cut-side-down onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Cook under the preheated broiler until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, about 5 minutes. Place the blackened peppers into a bowl, and tightly seal with plastic wrap. Allow the peppers to steam as they cool, about 20 minutes. Once cool, remove the skins and discard. Dice the roasted peppers.
  4. While the peppers are cooling, melt the butter in a pot over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, and stir until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk the chicken broth into the flour mixture, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture is thick and smooth, about 10 minutes.
  5. Stir in the diced peppers, diced chicken, corn, black beans, Cheddar cheese, and pepper jack cheese. Season with cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer, and simmer until the cheese has melted and the soup is hot, about 10 minutes. Serve sprinkled with tortilla chips.

As others mentioned this is a great recipe to get started. I fired up the gas grill and roasted the poblanos & two ears of corn while I grilled the chicken breasts. I omitted the beans since I ...

Excellenct soup - I would recommend using more poblanos for a spicier soup - also took a reviewers advice & added some taco seasoning - very good topped with tortilla chips & a little sour cream

I wanted to make half of this recipe and knew ahead of time I’d be freezing some of it, so I went about this a little differently. I made the soup, adding some carrot for color and taco seasoni...
