with rotisserie chicken, peas, and sweet potatoes
- Rotisserie chicken - 1/2 , shredded
- Bacon - 8 slices, diced
- Garlic - 3 cloves, minced
- Green onions - 3 stalks, chopped, white and green parts separated
- Onions - 1, diced
- Sweet potatoes - 1 1/2 lbs, diced
- Cooking oil - 1 Tbsp
- Chicken stock - 2 1/2 cups
- Adobo sauce (usually found with canned chipotle peppers) - 1 Tbsp
- Peas - 2 cups
- Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then bacon. Saute until the edges are golden and then set aside onto a paper towel lined plate to catch any fat. Keep ~1 tbs. (15 ml) of fat in the pot.
- Return pot back to medium-high heat. Add in garlic, white parts of green onions, and onions with a dash of salt. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes. Stir in sweet potatoes, stock, and adobo sauce. Cover and bring to a boil and then simmer covered for ~5 minutes. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup just a bit. You want to leave some of the potatoes but also puree some to thicken the soup without having to add any cream.
- Stir in peas and rotisserie chicken, and cook until warmed through, ~5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper (or more adobo sauce for a deeper smoky taste). Serve in bowls, garnished with bacon bits and chopped green onions.
This was really good and comforting. Wish we would have made enough for leftovers.0 Helpful
Good soup to add to our rotation.0 Helpful
There's two versions of this one, the other one has poblano peppers and zucchini in it. They are both really good. On the other one I did add extra broth base to give it a touch more flavor.0 Helpful
We used the original recipe but made it vegan with mock meats and veg stock. It was pretty easy to make and very yummy!0 Helpful
Made a large batch for freezer leftovers.0 Helpful
After I made this I realized I had totally forgotten to add the corn or to salt/pepper to taste. Husband found it pretty bland, but was okay with ingredients and texture. This is a very filling meal that could be easily adapted to a slow cooker. (Mine sat on simmer for at least an hour while I waited for my husband to get home.) I made this without a dutch oven or immersion blender -- just cut the potatoes up a bit smaller and smash them a bit to release some of the starch.0 Helpful
