Chipotle Chicken Vegetable Soup
Happy first day of fall! It may still be hot here in Florida, but hey, we eat hot dinners most days anyways, so who cares if we eat soup when it’s 85 degrees outside, right? For many of you, the weather is likely starting to feel a bit cooler, so I’m sure you’re ready for a tasty soup recipe! This Chipotle Chicken Vegetable Soup is full of flavor, easy on ingredients, and quick on preparation time. I love that it’s quick to make, meaning it won’t heat up the house too much (good for those of us in hot climates) but it’s still got all the best parts of comfort food – warmth, savory flavor, hearty veggies, and lots of protein.
This soup is made with just a handful of ingredients. The base is made with Hatch red enchilada sauce, chicken broth, and minced chipotles in adobo sauce. You can find chipotle in adobo sauce in the Mexican or Spanish foods section of your local grocery store or Spanish foods market – it comes canned and a little goes a long way. For the cooked chicken, I like to shred up a rotisserie chicken from my local grocery store (they have gluten-free rotisserie chicken; always check with your grocery store to see if they use any gluten ingredients in their rotisserie chicken).
You can top this soup with whatever you might top tacos with, such as sliced avocado, cilantro, crumbled queso fresco or other cheese, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
