chipotle (chicken) soup


Chipotle sauce is very similar to red chile sauce, but it is made with smoked dried jalapeños instead of the long chile.

I have never seen the dried chipotle pods in local stores, so my best option here was to use the canned version. If you have access to the dry pods, you can prepare chipotle sauce in the same same way as red chile: rehydrate, peel and puree.


This is what you need for 3 quarts = 6+ servings:

  • up to 1/2 lb. chipotle sauce (here: canned)
  • 1-2 lbs. Normandy vegetable mix
    (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchinis)
  • S&P


  • 1-2 chicken legs / chicken bouillon

FYI: Chipotle is available in several forms in local grocery stores and online:

  1. Chipotle powder is available in dry spices isle in most grocery stores and online.
  2. Liquid hot sauces with chipotle are available in several brand names and varieties.
  3. Chipotle puree/sauce or whole chipotles in adobo sauce is available canned under several brand names. The local stores favor the La Costeña brand.
