Creamy Green Chile Chicken Soup

September/October 2013

Your rating: None Average: 3.2 (31 votes)

Here’s a favorite Southwestern chicken soup recipe featuring the exquisite New Mexican green chile (but poblano peppers work well too). Traditional versions of this creamy green chile chicken soup recipe are made with heavy cream or half-and-half, but our recipe for this healthy chicken soup is made creamy with thickened low-fat milk.

I felt the recipe really needed more texture, acid and salt... it was super bland for my palate, as is. I added a couple cloves of garlic, doubled the wine, about a quarter cup of lemon juice (although lime juice would have worked better, we just didn't have any) and poured in the salt until I was happy. Texturally I needed more too, so I crushed up some tortilla chips and offered low-fat sour cream when I served. It was a hit!

Good without milk- add spice

I'm lactose intolerant, so I left the milk out and replaced it with more chicken broth. Used the advice of another poster and added roasted fresh corn. Also halved the salt and white pepper. Added more oregano and about 1/2 tsp cumin. Will make again. Might roast chicken also. Husband liked.

Needs extras

As is this is basically chicken in a thickend milk sause, flavor is ok, but it needs more in it. I added black beans and some roasted corn, this definitely helped out a low
