Salsa Verde Chicken Soup

Salsa Verde Chicken Soup

Salsa verde is not only a tasty taco topper but the shortcut ingredient in this quick 5-ingredient soup for 2, combining the flavours of roasted tomatillos, onion, cilantro and the kick of jalapeno without all the prep. Great on its own or topped with crumbled feta, cilantro, a squeeze of lime and the crunch of tortilla chips on the side.
