I wanted to make a soup recipe that was different than the stuff we normally have. I have about a dozen different soup recipes that I rotate throughout the month, but I just wanted to make something different.
As I’ve mentioned before, my family LOVES the flavours of Mexican food. Cilantro, tomatoes, chiles… we just can’t get enough. So I decided to make a chicken soup that incorporated some of those flavours we love so much.
This green chilli chicken soup is the result. It came out fairly spicy, which we love, but if your family is sensitive to spicy food, you can halve the amount of jalapeño or just leave it out altogether.
Can you replace the chicken with pork?
This dish will work with various meats and fishes so why not try a prawn green chili soup or a pork green chili soup
Do you need to add cream to the chili soup?
This dish is made without adding cream but if you would like to make it a richer creamy taste then you can add a tablespoon of double cream at the end.
