chili relleno

 2 Poblano peppers, blistered and skinned
 1 Jalapeno pepper, blistered and skinned (optional)
 2 tbsp avocado oil
 ½ cup white onion, diced
 ¾ lb chicken thigh or breast meat, cooked and shredded
 2 cups red enchilada sauce
 1 ½ cups canned diced tomato
 ½ cup full fat cream cheese
 1 cup Fond Bone Broth ‘The Spur’
 salt and pepper, to taste
 ¼ cup queso fresco
 cilantro for garnish (optional)
 lime for garnish (optional)

Preheat oven to broil.


Place the Poblanos and Jalapeno on a baking sheet and broil in the oven on the middle rack. Allow the peppers to blister and blacken deeply, rotating a ¼ turn once this is achieved on every side.


Remove peppers from oven and place them in a Ziploc bag to steam to help loosen the skins. Peel the skins off, remove the seeds, and rough chop the peppers.


In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, add the avocado oil and onions. Cook until browned, about 6 minutes.


Add the remaining ingredients for the soup and stir until combined. Let warm through over medium-high heat for 10 to 12 minutes, making sure not to boil so the cheese does not curdle.


Place in a bowl and garnish with toppings. Enjoy!
