Nonna’s Cilantro Soup

One of my favorite herbs is Cilantro (Coriander).  It is a typical Mexican flavor.  Our family really loves this soup and my Mother’s recipe is really easy.  Buen Provecho!

Cilantro Soup

2 Tablespoons butter
1 large package of cream cheese
2 Cups cilantro leaves
2 Cups chicken stock
1 chile poblano without the seeds, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon corn starch

Fry the onion in the butter with the chile until onion is translucent.  Mix the corn starch in a 1/4 cup of the stock.  Add the cilantro, cream cheese and all of the stock, including the   corn starch mixture.  Simmer for 10 minutes.  Place in blender and blend until smooth.  If it is too thick, you can thin it out with more stock.  It can be served either hot or cold.
