Cook the Chicken

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) Halve, peel and chop the shallot into small pieces.

c) Heat a drizzle of oil in a large saucepan on medium-high heat.

d) Once hot, add the diced chicken and shallot. Season with salt and pepper. Fry until the chicken is golden brown all over and the shallot is soft, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.

Bake the Tortillas

a) Meanwhile, cut each tortilla (2 per person) into 8 triangles (use scissors if easier).

b) Place on a large baking tray in a single layer (use two trays if needed) and drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper.

c) When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until lightly golden brown and crisp, 5-7 mins. TIP: Keep an eye on them as they can brown quickly.

Bring on the Beans

a) While the tortilla chips bake, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Pop half the kidney beans and their liquid into a medium bowl, then mash with a potato masher.

b) Add the garlic and chipotle paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder) to the chicken pan and stir-fry for 1 min.

Simmer the Soup

a) Once the chicken is golden, stir through the whole and mashed beans, chicken stock paste, passata, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts).

b) Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down slightly and simmer, 5-7 mins.

Finish Up

a) When the soup has finished cooking, remove from the heat. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

b) Add a splash of water to loosen if needed.

Garnish and Serve

a) Share the chipotle chicken soup between your bowls.

b) Drizzle over the creme fraiche and swirl it in if you'd like.

c) Serve with the tortilla chips alongside for dipping.



If you'd like to use an air fryer, simply swap out the oven steps for the below:
1. Preheat your air fryer to 200°C. Prep, oil and season the tortilla triangles.
2. Once hot, add them to the basket. Bake until lightly golden brown and crispy, 5-7 mins. TIP: Don't overcrowd your basket. Bake in batches if necessary.
