Wasn't horrible, but lacked depth. Basically chicken broth with a ton of peppers and onions, definitely needs something more. Won't be making again, there are too many other great soup recipes out there!

Sautéed onions, poblano chiles, and bell peppers form the foundation for this flavorful 30-minute soup.

- 2 cups chopped white onion
- 2 cups chopped seeded poblano chile
- 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 (14-ounce) cans fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
- 2 (15-ounce) cans navy beans, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded queso chihuahua or Monterey Jack cheese
- 2 1/2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
- Heat a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion, chile, red bell pepper, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Add broth; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the beans, juice, and cumin. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Ladle about 1 1/2 cups soup into each of 5 bowls, and top each serving with about 3 tablespoons cheese and 1 1/2 teaspoons sour cream.
This soup derives its spiciness from the poblanos while sour cream helps mellow the heat and round out the flavors. The soup gets its name from the cooked peppers that are called rajas in Spanish.
