Mexican Chicken Vegetable Soup

I had a version of this at a restaurant in Cabo San Lucas.  As soon as I got home from vacation I worked to make this recipe for Mexican Chicken Vegetable Soup, which has a lot more veggies.   It's basically a chicken vegetable soup with poblano peppers, queso fresco and cilantro to give it the Mexican flavor.  This is one of my favorites, especially when it's cold outside.  You get a little heat from the poblano pepper and the temperature of the soup.   I hope you like it!
