A big bowl of hot, spicy soup is comforting on a chilly day! New Mexico Green Chile has a bold, roasty, savory flavor and is packed with Vitamin C. It’s somewhat easy to find these days jarred or frozen if you don’t have access to fresh roasted. I love this soup because it’s easy to pull together quickly, thanks to a few convenience items (hello rotisserie chicken and premade bone broth).
The longer you let it simmer the more flavorful it becomes. But, if you don’t have time for that, it’s still great right off the bat and the flavors will meld together overnight in the fridge, making it even better for leftovers! I shared this recipe a while ago on instagram and got several requests for it afterwards, so here it is…
Whole30 Green Chile Chicken Soup
- 1 cup diced yellow onion
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
- 3 cups shredded chicken, cooked (timesaver tip: shred a rotisserie chicken)
- 2 cups Yukon Gold potatoes, diced
- 1 package Bare Bones Bone Broth Classic Chicken (so flavorful even on it’s own for sipping!)
- 1 can fire roasted tomatoes, 14oz
- 1 container chopped Bueno Hatch Green Chile, drained. Or 1-2 cups chopped roasted green chile. I buy mild or medium, but if you’re using hot, use less or to your liking. If I use mild my kids will happily eat it! A couple more favorite brands are 505 Southwestern and Zia Chile Company.
- 2 cups water
- Cubed avocado, fresh cilantro, lime slices to garnish/top. (If you’re not doing a Whole30 you can also add sour cream or shredded cheese on top)
- Add 1 tsp ghee or olive oil to pot
- Over med heat, sauté onion until translucent then add garlic, sauté a couple more mins.
- Add shredded chicken, tomatoes,
- Add cumin, salt, and pepper
- Stir until well combined then add green chile
- Add Bare Bones Chicken Bone Both
- Add potatoes and 2 cups water
- Turn to high, and bring to a boil.
- Once it starts to boil, turn to low and set simmer at least 30 mins.
- Garnish with avocado cubes, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime.
