After having a delicious pasta dish with corn and poblanos, we came up with this wonderful soup. Summertime is the best for peak flavors.

The sweetness of the corn offset by the hot poblano is exciting. The heat of poblanos can differ, taste it before adding to the soup and adjust to desired taste.
