Put together with a handful of ingredients from the refrigerator and pantry, this was a very quick and simple soup that was a delicious weekend lunch.
Dicing the potatoes extra small allowed the soup to be ready to eat in under 20 minutes. Soups are one of my favorite ways to use up small amounts of leftovers in the refrigerator.
I resisted the urge to add beans to this soup, despite the fact that I have a well-documented habit of adding beans to just about every single soup I make. If you share that inclination, either black or white beans would be delicious in this soup as well.
Green Chile Chicken and Potato Soup
- 2 teaspoons butter
- ½ large yellow onion diced into 1/2" pieces
- 3 stalks celery very thinly sliced
- 1 large chicken breast cooked and shredded or chopped, about 1 ½ cups
- 1 pound russet potatoes peeled and diced into small 1/2" pieces, this was 1 extra large potato
- 7 ounces chopped green chile
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- ½ teaspoon marjoram
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- In the bottom of a medium size pot, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add the onions and celery and saute until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!

We are a beanie family too – this sounds great. Thanks for the reminder about cutting them small so they will cook faster – have a lovely Monday!

I love all your green chili dishes, and I think I just might have everything I need for this soup here in the kitchen, yay!
Wow, I love this..sort of combines two of my favorite soups – chicken tortilla and potato.
Nice soup! Green chili adds fantastic flavor doesn't it?
I love that there's a hint of spice in this! Total comfort food!
Loved the soup feel like having right now 🙂
"Pantry dive" dishes are some of the best!

Made this tonight and it was perfect. Used a good poultry seasoning instead of the Marjoram and Oregano, other than that we did just as the recipe read. Everyone liked it, even my dad, who thinks ketchup is too spicy 🙂
