Mexican Butternut and Chicken Soup Recipe + Member site update

Once, again things have been very busy.  But I thought it was time to give a brief update about the new membership site.  Some people have had questions so I will answer them here.  Then, check out the new soup recipe below.  I created this a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it!

When will the membership site be ready?

Our scheduled launch date is next Monday the 31st of January.  At this point I am not sure if that means people will be able to login that day or if everything will be done and ready for people to login on the 1st of February.  My web designer is doing everything possible to get it done by Monday, but I will know more by the end of this week if for some reason we need an extra few days.

UPDATE:  February 2: So, we weren’t able to meet the deadline unfortunately because of the snow storm last week.  My web programmer is a mom to a little one and she can’t work when the daycare is closed due to weather.   We have also had quite a few other snow days this season.  So, as of now, launch date is still to be determined.  However, you can still pre-order and receive the Substitutions for Allergy-Free Cooking e-book for free before the launch.

I pre-ordered a membership.  How do I login to the new site?

You will be receiving an email about how to login either this week or early next week.  You’ll receive a password and that is how you’ll login to the member site.

If you pre-ordered, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting in the project without seeing the end product.  Please know that you have helped to make this dream possible.  I’ve been working steadily on this project since last June so it has been a long process, but one that I believe will truly help so many people with food allergies.

I hope you enjoy this soup!  Have a great day!


Servings: 4
Prep + Cook = 30 minutes
This is a delicious and hearty meal that is suitable for even the GAPS Intro diet.  It’s also a great way to use up left-over roasted chicken.  Enjoy!

* 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
* 1/2 onion, diced
* 2 cloves garlic, minced, or 1/4 tsp garlic powder
* 1 quart stock, preferably homemade, more if needed
* 2 cups butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed
* 1 pound chicken breast, or thighs
* 1/2 lime or lime, squeezed
* 1 teaspoon cumin
* 1 teaspoon oregano
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
* 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, freshly chopped, or 1-2 tsp dried

1.  In a small saucepan, add the chicken and 2 inches of water.  Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer.  Cook for 15 minutes, or until no longer pink in center.  Drain and put chicken in a bowl to cool.  Set aside.  Shred when cool to touch.

2.  In a large soup pot, heat the coconut oil to medium heat and sauté the onion until soft and translucent.  Add the garlic and sauté briefly.

3.  Add the stock, butternut squash chunks, lime juice, cumin, and oregano.  Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until squash is soft. Add the shredded chicken, salt and pepper and heat through.

4.  Add chopped cilantro and serve.

  1. Do you think this would work with acorn squash instead of butternut?

  2. Hi Katie,
    Yes, it would work with any winter squash or even zucchini or yellow squash. The only difference will be acorn will be harder to peel, so I would suggest just baking the acorn squash in the oven, and then when the soup is done, spooning chunks of squash into it. It may end up falling apart so you don’t have cubes but it would still be tasty.
