Jalapeno Popper Chicken Soup Is a Satisfying Twist on the Classic Appetizer

Who doesn't love jalapeno poppers? This recipe takes those flavors and turns them into a thick, flavorful soup! You may be leery about adding four jalapenos, but trust me, the soup is not overly spicy at all. Add 'em! 

You'll need:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large jalapenos, minced
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 large bell pepper or poblano pepper, chopped
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 2 potatoes, cubed
  • 1 bag (16 ounces) frozen corn 
  • 2 - 3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 4 - 5 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Here's how to make it:

  1. Cook the jalapenos, onion and pepper in the olive oil until soft.
  2. Add the chicken stock and potatoes. Cook until potatoes are tender.
  3. Stir in the corn, cooked bacon, Cheddar cheese, cream cheese and a little parsley. Cook until cheese is melted.
  4. Add the cream and slowly heat through. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Note: If you use a poblano instead of a bell pepper, the soup will be spicier.
