    2 tbsp flour
    1/2 tsp chili powder
    1 tbsp cumin (ground cominos)
    1/2 tsp each: salt and black pepper
    2 tbsp canola oil
    1/2 cup finely diced onion
    1/2 cup finely diced poblano pepper, plus more for garnish
    1/2 tsp chopped garlic
    2 tbsp butter
    3 cup chicken stock
    1/2 cup half-and-half

    1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese


    Cut 3 tortillas into ninths, place in food processor and chop until
    fine. Add flour, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Blend to the
    consistency of cornmeal. Place oil in stockpot over medium-high heat.
    Add onion, 1/2 cup poblano pepper and garlic. Saute until onion is
    clear. Add butter and let melt. Add tortilla-flour mixture to the pan
    and mix to form a roux. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring with a wire
    whip. Do not let mixture burn. While stirring, slowly add stock,
    scraping down sides and bottom often. Add half-and-half. Bring to a
    slow simmer and cook 7 to 10 minutes. Do not let soup come to a hard
    boil. Turn off heat and let cool. Add chicken before serving. Top
    each serving with shredded cheese, diced poblano pepper and tortilla
    strips. ** Houston Chronicle 8/2/95 **
