  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 2 poblano chilis
  • 1-2 jalapeƱo chilis
  • 2 chicken breasts 10 oz each
  • 1 cup dried cannellini beans >> soaked overnight, rinsed, and drained
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp ancho chili powder
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • sour cream
  • cilantro
  • avocado
  • tortilla strips
  • lime juice


  1. Peel and chop onion and peel and crush garlic.

  2. Wash and chop celery and wash, deseed, and chop chilis.

  3. Optional: Stir-fry vegetables in a large pan over medium heat until onions are translucent or even browned. (This is not absolutely necessary, gives great flavor though).

  4. Add vegetables to crock pot and place two large chicken breasts in the slow cooker, too. Add soaked drained beans and spices and then pour chicken broth over everything.

  5. Put on the lid and set to 8 hours on low. 

  6. Remove the chicken breasts from the slow cooker and place on a cutting board to then shred with two forks. 

  7. If you want your soup to be super creamy you can take a potato masher and mash up some of those super soft cannellini beans before you add the shredded chicken back into the crock pot.

  8. Serve in bowls and top with one or all toppings listed in the ingredients. A dollop of sour cream, some cubed fresh avocado, fresh cilantro, crisp tortilla strips, and lime juice. To make your own tortilla strips check out the instructions on my Tortilla Soup Recipe.
