Prep time


Cooking time






  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs

  • 3 cups chicken broth

  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion

  • 1/2 4’inch jalapeno, diced

  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes and chilies, drained

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped, divided

  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and diced

  • 4 tablespoons sour cream, for topping

  • 1 cup mild cheddar cheese, for topping

  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • In a small bowl, mix the chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder. Sprinkle half of the mixture over the chicken thighs. Add salt and pepper to your preference.
  • In a large pot over medium-high heat, warm the coconut oil, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully add the chicken thighs to the pot and sear then reduce the heat and continue cooking until chicken is cooked fully. Remove and set aside.
  • Add onion, jalapeno, and green bell pepper to the pan. Sauté for 2 minutes then add diced tomatoes and chilies. Use a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pan as the tomatoes release juice. Continue to cook for about 5 minutes, until soften and become fragrant.
  • Sprinkle with remaining seasoning. Pour in broth and tomato paste; stir, and bring to a boil. Let the soup boil for 1-2 minutes then reduce to a simmer.
  • Cut cooked chicken into small bite-size cubes. Return to simmering soup along with butter.
  • Let simmer for 15 minutes. When done, remove from heat and sprinkle with half of the cilantro. Top with sour cream and shredded cheese. Serve.


  • If you find it hard to deal with cilantro, feel free to swap it with a herb you like.
