  1. Pour broth into a soup pot, or large saucepan, and bring to a simmer. Add the chile peppers, chicken, garbanzo beans, oregano, chipotle peppers, rice, salt and pepper. Return to a simmer, and cook for 30 minutes. If the soup is too thick, you can add a little more broth. Ladle into serving bowls, and top with sliced avocado and cheese cubes.

I bought a can of chipotle peppers... then needed to find a recipe to use it! With all the exciting ingredients I expected more flavor. The cheese and avocado cubes were fun additions. We add...

This was delicious. If you want to cut the spiciness down cut out the seeds in the chipotle pepper, then add them to individual bowls as desired.

Very good, easy soup. I sauteed some onions and garlic first and added broth and rest of ingredients to pot. It would be great w/some chopped fresh cilantro. Didn't have this time, will next tim...

This was a little spicy for several of the people I served it to, but others raved about it. In the future I will probably try to make it less spicy.

Very good soup. I omitted the salt because chicken broth has enough salt in it. I added garlic powder and in addition to the white beans, I added a can of black beans to get more protein.
