Green Chile Chicken Soup

Whole30 Green Chile Chicken Soup
This soup is just something that you can do with leftover chicken. I use the bones to make a stock and build the flavors from there. You can find my stock method here.  I have green chile roasted in my freezer. If you can not find Hatch Green Chile, you can substitute roasted, peeled Poblano peppers or Anaheim peppers. They won't be the same but they will be good. I actually ran out of what is pictured below and had to order some online.


Once you have those ingredients on hand it's really easy. There's only a ten minute cooking time in the Instant Pot, plus about 5 minutes resting time. You can get this on the table in under 30 minutes even if you use a pot on the stove though.

This isn't an authentic Green Chile Stew, it's a quick complaint Whole30 soup that is flavorful and delicious though. It's perfect to have for leftovers also.
