One of the most inconvenient things in life has to be a man with a head cold. One of the best cures when this unfortunate event occurs is a couch, a blanket, and chicken noodle soup.
I adapted my earlier recipe with Poblano & Jalapeno peppers in place of hatch chilies. Another slight change was to add them toward the end along with the carrots to fully cook them but sort of al dente.
End of the story, headed back to the office tomorrow still fighting the bug but definitely on the mend thanks to rest and chicken soup.
