“Spicy, hearty chicken soup. I enjoy mine with some slices of sourdough bread to dip in the soup.”

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or more if needed
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 head garlic, minced, or to taste
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into cubes
  • 1 (7 ounce) can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (such as Embasa(R)), chopped, adobo sauce reserved, or to taste
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro (leaves only), chopped

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Pour chicken broth into saucepan; add chicken. Place a lid on the saucepan and cook until the chicken pieces are no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes.
  3. Put chopped chipotle peppers in a bowl with about half the reserved adobo sauce; stir. Mix tomatoes and cilantro together in a separate bowl.
  4. Stir chipotle mixture into the broth mixture a spoonful at a time, stirring and tasting between each addition, until the level of spiciness is to your liking. Remove saucepan from heat and stir tomatoes with cilantro into the soup.
