My nanny family had some soup similar to this in their fridge and when I tried it I wanted that bowl to be endless. So, Literally that week I went to the store and got stuff to try and make a similar soup to share with ya'll. It's creamy, it's flavorful, it's got bursts of sweet freshness from the corn, and a bit of spice from the peppers. Overall, it's a million percent my recommendation for this current cold and rainy weather. So, let's make soup together.
Okay, so firstly, you can make this in the Instant Pot. the Crock Pot or the stovetop.
I made this in my instant pot but actually put it on the slow cooker setting so it would be freshly ready when Jeremy got off since i wasn't going to be home. But I'll tell you what to do for all three options.
Either way, start with 2 cups of chicken. You can use 2 raw breasts for any method, I just happened to have rotisserie chicken left over.
Chop half an onion
add it in
2 cloves of garlic, minced.
1 can cannelloni beans
two cans diced green chiles, I used hot.
1 can of corn. Or frozen. Or fresh.
a couple cracks of pepper, about 1/2 tsp
1 tsp cumin (this is the most important spice IMO)
1/2 tsp Oregano
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
seed and dice 1 poblano pepper.
throw it in
you're gonna need 4 cups of chicken broth (add water if you don't like your soup to be too chunky)
Slow cooker: 6 Hrs || Instant Pot: 30 minutes || Stovetop: Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for at LEAST 1 hour but up to 3.
When you're almost ready to serve, add in 1/4 cup heavy cream.
and 4 T cream cheese. Let it cook for another 10-15 minutes, just to melt the cream cheese.
dish it up. Feel free to top it with whatever you want. Monterrey Jack cheese, fresh cracked pepper, Jalapeno slices, sour cream, avocado... I ate mine without any toppings and did not regret it one bit.
Also, this freezes really well, just put one serving size in a ziplock and lay flat to freeze, then it'll defrost super quickly. It also is great as leftovers from the fridge. It's almost better the next day cause the flavors had so much time to hang out.
