Spicy Corn Chowder with Chicken

This is a really good soup recipe from  My Favorite Things, I added a poblano pepper to this chowder as I was trying to make something similar to Randal's favourite soup from central market, which is a poblano chicken chowder.  This came really close to that, although it wasn't quite spicy enough for Randal.

2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
2 slices bacon
1 onion, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1 poblano pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 small potatoes, diced
3 cups corn
1 tbsp fresh thyme
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper

Cut the bacon into strips and fry in a medium pan until crispy, set aside. To the bacon fat add the onion, jalapeno, bell pepper, poblano pepper and corn, cook for about 5 minutes.  Add in the thyme and season with salt and pepper.  Add in the potatoes, chicken stock and milk.  Simmer for about 20 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.  Transfer half of the soup to a blender and puree.  Add back to the soup pot and add in the cooked chicken and heavy cream.  Let simmer for a few minutes, top each bowl of chowder with the bacon.
