It's getting cooler here in Sunnyvale! And while swinging kettlebells is a great way to stay warm ... I'm a huge fan soup when it's rainy outside and cozy inside. This chicken soup could easily be made vegetarian, has a great smoky sweet flavor and is choc-a-block full of vitamins!
Pumpkin and Green Chili Soup Serves 4 ish
1 Box of Trader Joe's Pumpkin Soup 1 Tbs olive oil 1/4 cup chopped onions 1/2 cup chopped celery, carrots, bell peppers...whatever's in the fridge! 1 small can corn 1/2 small can green chilies 1/2 cup chopped, pre cooked chicken (I used leftovers from my last roaster) 1 1/2 cup boiling water + 1 boullion cube OR 1 1/2 cup broth
Sautee onions, carrots, celery etc. in olive oil until slightly soft. Stir in green chilies and cook for few min more. Add soup and cook for 2-3 min, then stir in chicken and corn. Add water/bouillon or broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3-5 min. Top it with avocado, green chili tobasco sauce, a dollop of Greek yogurt and some chives!
Loving me some pumpkin as per the fall usual, so stay tuned for more orange goodness!
