Project Description

My good friend came over a couple months ago and we both made a Mexican style soup, mine was red and hers was white.

They were both delish! But I loved the ‘cream’ base and I’ve been thinking about creating a recipe that would be similar, yet dairy-free and finally got settled into our home so here it is! 🙂 Not only is it super quick to make – it is super tasty and filling!

I top this with cilantro, avocado, sliced jalapeno and crushed tortilla chips (only a couple!) and, of course, a bit of hot sauce!

  2. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-4 hours, until the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Remove the chicken breasts to a plate to shred and set aside.
