Allergy Free Potato Chowder with Green Chiles

Here's a recipe I used to make long before Bee was born.  I've adapted it so that we can eat it again.  It's one of Prince Charming's favorite soups.  It's a creamy potato soup with a little bit of spice.  The colors make me think of Christmas........

Potato Chowder with Green Chiles
1 red bell pepper
2 poblano peppers
5 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 large onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
chicken broth
1/4 cup Earth Balance
1/3 cup rice flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 1/2 cups rice milk

Broil peppers on foil lined baking sheet for 5 minutes per side or until blistered.  Place in ziploc for 10 minutes to loosen skins.  Peel and then chop peppers.  Remove seeds from poblanos for a milder soup.
Boil peppers and next 5 ingredients.  Add enough chicken broth to cover.  Reduce heat and let simmer.
In separate saucepan, melt Earth Balance over medium low heat.  Whisk in flour and next 3 ingredients.  Gradually whisk in milk.  Continue stirring until thickened.  Then add to potato mixture.
Cook over medium heat until potatoes are soft and soup is thickened slightly.
