Unlike last night's dinner, everyone liked this. In my freezer was the last bit of shredded Green Chile Chicken. I knew I wanted to make a soup with it because there is no lettuce in the house and it is cold today. So much for Spring Break, huh?
I threw together some of my favorite ingredients--my almost still new green chile powder, some frozen green chilies, some cream cheese and chicken broth. It turned out great. For my carby boys, in the green and blue bowls, I added some cooked rice. For the low carbers, just the soup with a sprinkling of Jack cheese.
If you don't have any green chile powder, you really need to order some. The taste is all in there! Here is where I got mine. I have been throwing it in everywhere. Just about slugged the husband when he dropped it in the floor, sending my precious green powder everywhere. I even made him sweep it up--I couldn't bear to scoop it all into the trash can. Now I think I already need to place another order.
If you don't already have green chili chicken shreds, like I did, then just use plain chicken and double the amount of spices.

This was just right for our cloudy, cold weather. It is so hard to go back to cold drizzle after glorious sunshine! Somehow, though, a little chile pepper makes me warm all over.
