Chicken Green Chile Soup – Sadie’s Salsa
I just finished eating, but I’m so excited about how this came out that I had to tell you immediately. I made a slight variation to my Mom’s chicken soup recipe, and it was oh so good. Recently Sadie’s came out with a Green Chile Salsa. This is not a salsa for wimps, and it’s full of wonderful roasted Green Chile Flavor. I haven’t figured out if they have it here in Eugene (I packed it from Colorado) but if anyone knows where to find it PLEASE tell me. It is so good. Ah how I miss New Mexico green chilies.
Here’s how you make it.
2-3 chicken breasts or thighs
1 jar of Sadie’s Green Chile Salsa
3-4 carrots sliced
3-4 celery stalks sliced
8 cups water
8 chicken bouillon cubes
2 cloves of garlic
pepper and salt to taste
egg noodles (wide) – any noodles will do really
Empty the jar of salsa into a skillet with the chicken and 2 cups of water. Simmer. While that is cooking put the vegetables, spices and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling turn down heat to a simmer for about 20 mins. When chicken is cooked through cut into small pieces. Put all of the chicken and sauce into the soup with vegetables. Keep at a simmer and add pasta. Cook until pasta is done. Let Cool.
My nose is still running from the wonderful spicy food. For those that don’t have Sadie’s, you could try to substitute something else, but it won’t be nearly as good.
