The recipe calls for 2 whole chickens and gives instructions for how to prepare them. I made two changes immediately.
1. I didn't follow the cooking instructions. I already had cooked, shredded chicken on hand.
2. I cut the recipe in half. I didn't want to use that much chicken up on a recipe I'd never made before.
Like most good things, the recipe starts off with a saute of onions and garlic.
Here are some of the key ingredients (see recipe): Chipotle Peppers in Adobe Sauce, canned diced tomatoes, green chiles, fresh jalapeno, black beans, and shredded chicken
|The beginning of something amazing|
Pre-Spice (I never seem to remember to photograph ALL the ingredients...
This also has some frozen corn (recipe calls for canned).
With Spices on top:
Look at this yummy finished product!!
Here it is with the glorious and necessary (to dull the burn!) cheddar cheese and light sour cream:
|I've already had a large bowlful prior to this picture being taken|
Verdict: This was a very delicious recipe. I portioned it out into 6-8 servings (remember, I HALVED the recipe!) and ate it for lunch and dinner for until it was gone. I will definitely be making this recipe again. It is super duper delicious.
Side note: I also had some tortilla chips...I didn't crumble any of them into the soup or really even use them to dip anything except maybe once or twice. I guess thats just a preference thing...
