Green Chile Chicken and Potato Soup recipe by Barefeet In The KitchenPut 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.

    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 🙂
