Growing up in New Mexico, one of my favorite soups has always been Cream of Green Chili Chicken Soup. It is hard to find in New Mexico and impossible to find outside of the state. The best Cream of Green Chili Chicken Soup I have had in New Mexico is at the Ridgeback Cafe (formerly Timber Ridge Restaurant), in La Cuava located in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico. This recipe is my own version based on their recipe.
