Cream of Sweet Red Chili Soup
Fire and Peel 6 Chili Dulces*
Chop and saute one onion in 2 Tbs butter
Combine above with:
- 2 cups water
- 1 bouillon cube (chicken)
- basil, cayenne, cloves, cumin to taste
Bring to boil, then cool slightly.
Pour all into a blender, and blend until smooth.
In a jar, mix 1/2 cup milk with 3 Tbs powdered milk, then add to blender.

* Firing chili dulces is easy if you have a gas stove and tongs! Hold each whole chili over the open flame until the skin is blackened and hardened. Place fired chilis in a covered bowl and let rest for 15 minutes or more. Pull off the skin, and rinse if needed. Remove seeds and ribs.
