This soup is a great addition to your Chicken Soup repertoire. It has enough kick to take it over the edge without having the kids say "whoa mom". Have some fun with it, if you don't like that many green chilies leave a can out.

Make sure you add the toppings, they're fun!

Heat oil over medium heat in a large stock pot, add diced onions and saute until onions are clear. Add garlic and continue to saute for another minute.

3
Remove soup from heat and using a potato masher or submerge mixer slightly mash the veggies in the broth. The soup should stay slighty chunky.

Puree the can of diced tomatoes in a blender or food processor, add to soup. Add green chiles, parsley and the remaining broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium. Add the deboned, shredded chicken meat to the soup.

Serve with a sprinkle of con queso cheese, slivered green onions and tortilla strips. A dollop of sour cream or crema goes a long way.
