  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 16 ounces tomatillo, husked and quartered
  • 1 bunch cilantro, stems removed
  • 2 chopped jalapeño pepper
  • 3 cloves peeled garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 2 cans (about 4 ounces each) chopped green chiles
  • 6 cups Pacific Foods® Organic Chicken Stock, Unsalted
  • 4 ears corn on the cob
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs (or 4 cups cooked chicken, shredded or diced)
  • 1 bunch bunch radish, sliced
  • 2 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced


  • Step 1

    Remove corn kernels from cobs, reserving corn cobs.  

  • Step 2

    Make sofrito by adding onion, tomatillos, jalapeño peppers, garlic and half the cilantro leaves to a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Alternatively chop everything finely by hand. 

  • Step 3

    In a sauce pan (with a tight fitting lid) heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add sofrito and cook for about 5 minutes. Stir in oregano, chopped green chiles, bone broth and the reserved corn cobs and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and add chicken. Cover and cook at a gentle simmer over medium low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through. 

  • Step 4

    Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside to cool. Shred the chicken.  Discard the corn cobs. Stir the corn kernels and shredded chicken into the soup. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve topped with the reserved cilantro leaves, radishes, avocados, tortilla chips and Greek yogurt, if desired.


  • If using precooked chicken, add that after the soup simmers, when you add the corn kernels.
