Rotisserie Chicken Chile Verde Soup
with avocado and radishes
Smarts: Chile verde is normally made with pork shoulder but that's not a cut of meat that gets tender quickly so we swap out with some shortcut rotisserie chicken instead.

This was good, one of the better recipes we've tried. We used 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, a full box of broth and an additional can of beans before blending. Next time we'll add cilantro.0 Helpful
We like spicy food and this was easy to make with easy to find ingredients. Had a bit of difficulty making the tortilla chips but think we can work through that in the next go round. Made our own adaptations based on what we liked. Thank you.0 Helpful
