  • Add the chicken broth, beans, salsa verde, cumin, chicken and garlic to a stock pot over medium high heat.  Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Once it boils, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Turn off heat and stir in the cream.
  • Enjoy the soup as is, or top with sour cream, shredded cheese, tortilla chips and diced avocado!


The salsa gives it a nice kick, but it's not too spicy, as determined by my 70-something year old neighbor.  It adds amazing flavor!
