• 4 poblano peppers

• 2 tablespoons EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil

• 2 pounds ground chicken

• Salt and pepper

• 1 large onion, finely chopped

• 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

• 2 tablespoons cumin, a couple of palmfuls

• 1 tablespoon coriander, a palmful

• 2 cups chicken stock

• 1/4 cup dill, chopped

• 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped

• Hot sauce, to taste

• 1 cup sour cream

Preparation

Char peppers over a gas flame or under the broiler with oven door cracked for steam to escape. Place charred peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap to steam. Let cool then peel, seed and finely chop.

Heat 2 tablespoons EVOO in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chicken, season with salt and pepper, and brown and crumble the meat. Add onions and garlic to the pot and cook 5 minutes to soften. Season with cumin and coriander, and stir in chopped peppers. Add stock and herbs, and simmer 5 minutes. Season with hot sauce to taste.

Turn off heat and stir in sour cream to combine. Serve with chips alongside for dipping.
