2

In a large pot over medium-high heat, warm the coconut oil, about 3 Minutes. Carefully add the chicken thighs to the pot and sear then reduce the heat and continue cooking until chicken is cooked fully, reaching at least 165 degrees (F) internal temperature. Mine took about 15 minutes in a heavy dutch oven.

Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside. Add the onion, jalapeno, and green bell pepper to the pan. Saute in oil 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. This will get all the tasty chicken seasoning into the soup. Let the veggies cook for about 5 Minutes or until they begin to soften and become fragrant.

Cut the cooled chicken into small bite-size cubes. Add back into the simmering soup along with butter. The butter will remove any extra acidity in the soup.
