Helpful Hints

You can use canned green chilies.

To use the Chipotle chiles, wash them and then cut the stems off. Float them in the soup while cooking, and remove them before serving. If you want very spicy soup, you can cut the Chipotles up and add them to the soup at the end.

Really good! I had to improvise with ingredients I had on hand; I used canned chicken and also added Vulcan's fire salt (from The Spice House) and added a 15 oz can of beans to make it more filling. I'll definitely make it again, especially on a cold winter night. The smell was wonderful.

I've cooked this soup in our Redmond m90 (multicooker) - it tasted so nice! But I decided to make it a little less spicy. Great!
