Green Chile Chicken Chowder

Green Chile Chicken Chowder recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Tender white beans, roasted green chile, and chunks of chicken come together in this soup to create a flavorful meal absolutely perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. It's that time of year again and there's going to be soup simmering on my stove several times a week for the foreseeable future.

Green Chile Chicken Chowder is a simple soup that you can pull together with leftover or pre-cooked chicken and a few pantry or freezer items. I made this for dinner one night last week when we were all hungry and not wanting to wait for anything fancier. 15 minutes from start to finish is just about perfect in my book!

1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups chopped chicken, cut bite size

Combine the beans, tomatoes, chile, chicken both, cumin, salt, and pepper in a large pot. Stir and bring to a boil before reducing to simmer for five minutes. Add the cooked chicken, stir and simmer a minute longer. Remove from the heat when the chicken is warm. Scoop into bowls and squeeze lime around the top just before serving, if desired. Enjoy!
