It’s chile season! My poblanos are taking over the garden right now so I thought I would cook up a few into a hearty corn chowder. The soup consists of onions, celery, garlic, yukon gold potatoes, corn, green poblano chiles, and chicken stock. Near the end, you swirl in cream (chiles love cream) to balance out the heat of the chiles, and add a splash of lime juice for brightness.
From the archives, the most popular recipe on Simply Recipes, first posted 2005. Enjoy!
The best recipes have been handed down and passed around from friend to friend, mother to daughter, and neighbor to neighbor. Before the Internet, it was the surest way to find a good recipe, one that works with consistent results. I got this banana bread recipe years ago from my friend Heidi H, who, many years before, had begged the recipe from a ski buddy’s mother—Mrs. Hockmeyer. (Isn’t it funny how the parents of our childhood friends are always Mrs. and Mr. no matter how old we get?)
For the last several months (seems like years) we’ve been quietly working behind the scenes to update the design of Simply Recipes to make it easier to use on different screen sizes and tablets. We are delighted to present our new “semi” responsive design that changes shape depending on whether you are viewing the site on a desktop computer or on a tablet. (You can see this in action if you are on a computer; just resize your browser window and watch how various elements rearrange on the page.)
