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. 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.
ALWAYS ON THE GO…
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 slow cooker or Instant 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.
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!!!
- 4 cups chicken cooked and shredded
- 6 cups chicken broth
- 28 oz chile verde sauce canned or jarred
- 1 cup pepper jack cheese shredded
- 2 cups celery large chop
- 1/4 cup Juice of one lime
- 1/2 cup cream
Toss all ingredients into a slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours or Instant Pot for 25 minutes and then let the steam slow release for up to an hour.
Garnish with extras if you wish. Serve hot and enjoy!
