Green Chili Soup

Some people are normal and only eat soup in the winter when the weather is cold. Well, I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that we’re not normal! We LOVE soup all year long. We have a few staple soups that are always good to make. And we also like to try new soup recipes. Today, I’m excited to share with you a new recipe we tried for Chili Verde Soup (from Bev Cooks) that we happen to love and will certainly add to our list of regulars.

This recipe is so flavorful and is filled with some of our favorite ingredients – corn, chicken, cilantro and avocados. The combination of these foods is fantastic and made for such a great soup.

How to make Green Chile Chicken Soup

This Chili Verde is simple. Begin by searing the marinaded chicken in some oil. Season both sides with cumin, chili powder and salt and pepper. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Set aside and let cool for about 5 minutes, then cube.

From there, heat up the salsa verde and chicken stock in a large pot, bringing it to a simmer. Add corn, hominy and chicken and simmer for a little longer. Garnish with your favorite toppings (like cilantro, avocado, cheese and sour cream), and you’re set!

The great thing about this soup is it’s FANTASTIC just how it is! Plus, it can be personalized and added to with your own personal favorite ingredients (like olives and tomatoes). Play around and let us know what worked for you.
