I don’t care what time of year it is, I can always go for a good soup. And this Poblano Soup comes together in less than an hour, is filling, makes great leftovers…and that crispy soyrizo topping! It is just the perfect combo. You can add extra spice or keep it mild. Swap out the pinto beans if you like something better. Or load it up with as many toppings as your heart desires. Unlimited possibilities.
How to make the Poblano Soup
Start out by dicing the veggies. You will need poblano peppers, yellow onion, garlic and jalapeño. Add all the veggies to a stock pot with oil and some spices. Cook everything down for about 5 minutes.
Add in a can of fire roasted tomatoes, 2 cans of drained pinto beans, salsa verde and 3 cups of broth. Bring to a boil, then cover partially, lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
How to make the Crispy Soyrizo
While the soup is simmering, go ahead and make the soyrizo topping. There really isn’t a lot to it. Heat a pan over medium heat and add the soyrizo. Break it apart with a wooden and move it around until it is nice and crispy. Remove it from the pan and set aside.
You can also prep any other toppings you would like to use. I sliced up some limes and chopped some cilantro. But here are some other topping suggestions:
- tortilla chips
- pico de gallo
- hot sauce
How to serve Poblano Soup with Crispy Soyrizo
After the soup is done simmering, use an immersion blender to blend about half of the soup. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can also transfer half of the soup to a standing blender, blend, then add it back to the pot. This will thicken the soup. You can also skip this step if you want a thinner soup.
Stir in some vegan cream cheese and non-dairy creamer (or non-dairy milk) and stir until smooth and creamy.
Add the hot soup to bowls and top with the crispy soyrizo and any other toppings you have on hand.

Can I make this in an instant pot?
Hello I’ve now made 3 of your soups. I don’t make them strictly vegan but they’re always fantastic. Thank you so much!
Thanks so much!!!
I made this last night and my husband and I couldn’t stop raving about it. The spice was just right to us. I made some cheezy jalapeño cornbread muffins to go with it.
We’ll be enjoying the leftovers tonight and we can’t wait!
Thanks for creating this recipe.
Loved this soup! I made mine extra spicy in using hot chili powder. Thanks for all the great recipes!
Hollie – extra spicy? You’re talking to my soul! So glad you liked it!
This is such a refreshingly great new flavor soup and is so easy to make.
Taste was awesome (local store did not have poblano and suggested anaheim ones, which it what we used)
Thanks for sharing!
So glad you liked it! Sounds like a great swap!
Mmmm this sounds so yummy! And a special yay for another reason to keep soyrizo in the fridge!
Haha yes! Love soyrizo!!!
Thus looks delicious but I’m concerned that 12 oz of sales verde will be too much, especially with the poblano & jalapeños added 😅
Hi Carmen – poblanos aren’t spicy at all – they taste like a bell pepper. Ways to cut the spice are to de-seed the jalapeno (or omit it). And salsa verde isn’t spicy (to me – but that could be personal preference lol), so just add to taste and you can balance it with more broth. But I would say overall, this soup is very mild. Hope that helps!
