Extra Spicy Chicken Soup

Are you looking for a brand new soup recipe, something you can make to impress your family? The following recipe teams chicken with spicy seasonings and other south of the border flavors, to make something smooth, rich and really tasty. This will heat up your dinner table for sure, although you can use less spice to make it milder if you want.

The chili and the black pepper are the 2 ingredients which add the spicy taste so decrease those if you wish. We are using quite a lot in this recipe but of course you are the chef so you choose how much to use. Another option is to swap the chili for sweet paprika for a milder flavor. If you are making this for a crowd consider making 2 versions of the soup, a spicy one and a milder one, then people can pick which one they personally prefer and nobody accidentally gets something to spicy for their palate to handle!

Do this by using 2 pots and dividing the soup between both, adding the chili and pepper into one pot near the end and maybe a tiny pinch of each into the other one. The garlic and onions become sweet and mellow after cooking, and the onions also help to thicken up the soup. In addition to the spices and aromatic ingredients you will see this soup includes chili beans, tomato salsa, corn, sour cream, and other ingredients to add extra flavor and liven up the chunky texture of the soup which also helps make it heartier and more satisfying. Feel free to tweak the ingredients to make the soup unique. You will find it very easy to make and the flavor of the finished soup speaks for itself and offers a really exciting taste.

Photo Description:

This is a wonderful soup for people who love spicy food. The chicken soup is spiced up with chili powder and black pepper and also includes chili beans, tomatoes, garlic, onions, and more, so you can expect a well –balanced flavor, not just the spicy hit you get but also aromatic flavors, even sweetness from the garlic and corn. We like to add tortilla strips and chopped fresh tomato on top, as a garnish, to contrast with the spicy taste of the soup. Add a dollop of sour cream too if you wish.
