If you are making this with the grilled chicken, place it on the grill right after the chicken, to get all those flavors!
You can make this soup as thick or thin as you wish. I love thinner soups, especially when I add rice noodles, because then I can slurp them up like ramen!
You know that sweet chili sauce in the bottle that everyone buys? It’s filled with preservatives and chemicals that you don’t need but people really love the flavor. I recreated it in this dish but instead used fresh ingredients. These got finished in 4 minutes.
This soup is so hearty and great if you are having a crowd on a cold day. I put regular dried black beans in and they were fully cooked within 2 hours.
This is a great vegetarian and vegan dish but it would taste great with tofu, chicken or beef. Always sear the protein first, then remove it add the rest as instructed and put the protein back in last minute.
