Chicken Chile Verde Soup

This Chicken Chile Verde Soup really hits the spot when I’m looking for a hearty soup with a little kick. The two greatest things about this soup are that some of the time I use a store bought rotisserie chicken and the other is you can dump it all into one pot and walk away.

This soup is a time saver and a family favorite. I like to use Herdez Salsa Verde because all the ingredients are readable on the label. This Chicken Chile Verde soup is great at the end of a long day or freeze it and serve later for work or school lunches.


Theres nothing better than to open the fridge when you’re in a panic and have lunch or dinner already made. This soup is the best because I can dump all the items right into a stock pot and forget about it. Then any leftovers I can freeze and save for a later time.

Everyone loves Chicken Chile Verde Soup because it’s hearty and delicious with a little kick. Serve it with a side of sliced avocado or a side salad and all of a sudden you have a pretty quick family meal.

Too Spicy?

I tend to like my food with the added kick. This Chicken Chile Verde soup is not too spicy, however if you must adjust that’s perfectly fine to do. If you like the Mexican flavor but want to dial down the spice use can use regular jack cheese.

And sometimes you can’t find pepper jack cheese, so use regular jack cheese and toss in 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes or more if you dare!!!
