Freezer Crockpot Green Chili Chicken Soup

Green Chili Chicken Soup IngredientsThis featured recipe is next up in my Freezer Crockpot series of recipes and was a HUGE hit with family members.  This is the one that all three kids grabbed out of my freezer, so I am sure that you will love it as well.

While I typically steer free of most packaged foods, this recipe uses a marinade packet from Frontera that lends a depth of flavor to the soup that is unmatched without it.  These seasoning packets I like to use are from Chef Rick Bayless and are made from natural ingredients, very little to no preservatives and no sugar.  Most are sweetened when necessary with agave nectar and are also gluten free.  They add amazing flavor and are a great addition to punch up the flavor in my freezer crockpot recipes.  I hope you agree!

Recipe type: Freezer Crockpot Entree
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 - 1½ pounds chicken thigh or breast meat, cut into one inch chunks
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1 T Lime Pepper seasoning ( or Steak Seasoning)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, grated
  • Frontera Three Citrus Garlic Marinade or Frontera Key Lime Cilantro Taco Skillet Sauce (I have used both, depending on what my store stocks at any given time and they are equally good.)
  • 2 4 ounce cans chopped green chilis
  • 1 cup sweet onion, diced
  • 1 15 ounce can Eden organic canellini (white kidney) beans or 1 15 ounce can black beans
  • 1 small package frozen corn
  • 1 8 ounce package Pacific Chicken Bone Broth or one cup chicken stock
  1. Label gallon freezer bag with name of recipe, date made and be sure to indicate adding one cup bone broth or chicken stock at the time of cooking.
  2. Mix all ingredients together except bone or chicken broth and place into a gallon freezer bag.
  3. Lay flat and freeze for 2-3 hours until solid. Once solid, freezer packs can be stored upright in bins or boxes to maximize freezer space.
  4. Day of cooking take packet from freezer and allow to defrost slightly on counter at room temperature until the contents can be dumped into your crockpot.
  5. Add 8 ounces Pacific Chicken Bone Broth or one cup chicken stock.
  6. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low setting for 6 hours.
  7. Keep a close eye on your crockpot as all crockpots cook differently depending upon their power and size. Add more chicken broth if the contents become uncovered during cooking.
  8. Soup is done when the chicken is fork tender.
  9. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream and baked tortilla strips as a garnish.
