I found this great sounding soup in Cooking Club magazine and can't wait to try it. The poster writes: Chipotle chilies infuse this hearty chicken soup with an underlying heat and smoky flavor. Swiss chard fills it out nicely and adds a plethora of good nutrients.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove stems from chard; slice into 3/8" pieces (about 1 1/2 cups). Chop leaves (about 6 cups slightly packed).
  2. Heat oil in large pot over medium high heat until hot. Cook chard stems, onion and carrots 5-7 minutes or until softened, stirring frequently. Add garlic, chilies and oregano; cook and stir 20-30 seconds or until fragrant. Add broth, chicken and rice; bring to a boil.
  3. Turn chicken; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 20-25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center and rice is tender. Remove chicken; cool slightly.
  4. Add chard leaves to pot. Increase heat to medium; cook, uncovered, 3-4 minutes or just until chard is tender.
  5. Meanwhile, shred chicken into bite-sized pieces; return to soup. Garnish each serving with avocado and lime wedges.
