Spicy Green Chile Chicken Soup

Spicy Green Chile Chicken Soup

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 flavors 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 flavors we love so much.

This green chile 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 jalapeno or just leave it out altogether.
