Servings: 8


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cans Old El Paso Chopped Green Chiles (4.5-ounce cans)
  • 14.5 ounces “fire roasted” crushed tomatoes
  • 3 quarts chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 2 1/2 cups sliced carrots
  • 4 cups chopped cabbage
  • 3 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 avocados, peeled and diced
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Sauté Aromatics: Heat olive oil in a large 6-8 quart pot over medium heat. Add chopped onions and minced garlic. Sauté for 5-6 minutes until softened.
  2. Cooking Chicken: Add whole raw chicken breasts, Old El Paso Chopped Green Chiles, crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, ground cumin, crushed red pepper, turmeric, carrots, and 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20+ minutes until chicken breasts are cooked through.
  3. Shred Chicken: Remove chicken breasts from the pot with tongs and place them on a cutting board to cool. Use two forks to shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Adding Vegetables: Add chopped cabbage and broccoli to the pot. Continue simmering until broccoli is tender.
  5. Final Touches: Once broccoli is tender, return shredded chicken to the pot. Taste the soup and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.
  6. Serving: Serve the soup warm, garnished with diced avocado on top for added freshness and creaminess.


  • If the soup base boils down too much, add 2-3 cups of water to the broth and adjust seasoning accordingly.
  • Feel free to customize the soup by adding your favorite vegetables or adjusting the spice level to suit your taste preferences.
  • This soup can be stored in the refrigerator for several days, making it perfect for meal prep or enjoying leftovers throughout the week. Simply reheat gently on the stove or in the microwave before serving.
