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 jalapeno or just leave it out altogether.
Spicy Green Chile Chicken Soup
- 48 ounces chicken broth
- 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

- 1 1/2 cups frozen yellow corn
- Diced avocado and lime wedges, if desired, for garnish
- Put all ingredients except rice and corn into slow cooker. Add lid.
- Turn on high and cook 5-6 hours, or until chicken is tender and will shred easily with two forks.
