Creamy Habanero Chicken Soup

This Creamy Habanero Chicken Soup came from a friend of mine. I made it last night.
She warned me, but did I listen? NO!
I made this just as the recipe states. I have more soup than I will ever eat in a lifetime!
I froze some, pawned some more off on my neighbors, brought some into work for the girl who gave me the recipe to try, and plan on bringing some to my Nana tonight.
I still have 4 containers in the fridge!

I suggest cutting this recipe in half, unless you have a ton of mouths to feed.
This recipe reminds me of my creamy onion soup...I will post that next!

3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast

2 lbs carrots

1 bunch celery

1 onion

4 red bell peppers

2 bunches broccoli

6 habenaro peppers

2 bags frozen corn

1 lb pasta (your choice of type)


16 oz Velveeta

16 oz sour cream

1 lg can chicken broth

2 (12 oz) cans evaporated milk

1/2 gallon half & half

1 cup flour

1 cup butter

1 jar chicken boullion base

2 bay leaves

Directions: Cook chicken breasts to medium rare, it will finish in the soup.

Cool, cut into chunks

In large soup pot (16 qt) add chicken broth, carrots, celery, onion, peppers, and enough water to fill pot almost half way.

Boil until tender, then add broccoli

In large sauce pan, melt butter then add flour and wisk until smooth. Cook until thick and then add evaporated milk, wisk in sour cream.

Cut cheese into chunks and add along with half & half.

Add corn to soup pot and turn down to low.

Cook pasta seperately, drain and add to soup pot along with chicken, boullion, cream mixture from sauce pan and bay leaves.

Note: 6 habanero peppers malkes for a mildly hot soup with a kick. You can add more if you like it hotter.

  1. This soup sounds delicious. I love spicy food. I would have to cut the recipe in half though. That's a lot of soup. Thanks for sharing, and please feel free to share your recipes on Sunday's Best Linkup.
