This is my best friend's and my attempt to replicate the Green Chicken Chile Soup served at Los Arcos Steakhouse in Truth or Consequence, New Mexico. We love it and have it every time we are at the lake. I called several years ago and they will not give out the recipe. My best friend and I decided we needed to try to replicate it and used our husbands as guinea pigs -- we are close! This is fabulous any time but especially good on a COLD New Mexico night!
