Green chile season is quickly approaching. Picking should start within the next couple of weeks, so what better time to begin introducing some new green chile recipes. Last year I started with this Baked Blooming Onion with Hatch Chile, so in keeping with the onion and green chile theme, here is a Cold, Three Onion Green Chile Soup.
Cold soups help us get through the long hot summer, so they are a favorite meal this time of year. This three onion green chile soup is a tasty cold soup with a richness created from the use of three different types of onion and a little spice from roasted green chile. For a bit of sweetness and crunch, this soup is topped with a dollop of sour cream and toasted pinons (pine nuts). Serve with a simple grilled cheese of cheddar and bacon bits or your favorite for a complete meal.
