Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or oil of choice
  • 4 medium fresh poblano chile peppers, roasted directly over an open flame or broiled for 5 minutes until blackened and blistered
  • 2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 6-ounce can green chilies
  • 1 14.5 ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper 
  • Garnishes

  • Tortilla chips, crumbled
  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 lime, sliced into wedges

Directions

  1. Roast Poblanos: Turn on the flame on your gas stove and place poblano peppers on the flame. Turn often until charred. OR in the oven: Place the poblano peppers on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Broil on high for 3-5 minutes, turning halfway, or until the skin is browned and blistered.
  2. In a large dutch oven, heat oil on medium-high heat.
  3. Add onion, garlic, and carrots. Sauté for 3-5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
  4. Chop the poblanos into small pieces then add the poblano peppers and the spices and stir for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Pour the chicken broth, diced tomatoes, green chilies, beans, and spices. Stir until well combined. Cover and bring soup to a boil.
  6. Once at a boil, turn down heat and add in chicken. Let simmer covered for 20-25 minutes until chicken is fully cooked through and no pink remains. Take soup off the heat.
  7. Gently take the chicken out of the soup. Let cool, shred and set aside.
  8. Using a liquid measuring cup, scoop 4 cups of soup into a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add pureed soup and shredded chicken back into the soup and stir well.
  9. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  10. Serve warm with desired toppings!

Recipe Notes

  1. Instead of transferring 4 cups of soup to a blender, feel free to use an immersion blender in this step if desired! If using an immersion blender, make sure to leave some of the veggies whole, and avoid over-blending. The soup shouldn't be a pureed soup!
  2. This soup isn't super spicy, but to avoid spice, scrape out seeds from any peppers!
  3. Want to sub the poblano pepper?

    This was fantastic. Very low points on Weight Watchers too. I linked to your website on my WW connect page. Thanks for the recipe!

  15. Kathleen says:

    I made this last night for my husband and I and we both LOVED it. I threw a few handfuls of kale in at the end for some extra greens. Topped with feta, lots of cilantro, lime, and jalapeño! It was absolutely delicious – full of flavor and just enough spice but not overwhelming. Will definitely be making again! 🙂

    Sounds delicious and I’m anxious to try it. Do you rinse the beans before adding to soup or do you use the “juice” the beans are in?
