30 Minute Cheesy Hatch Chile Soup {Primal & Low-Carb}30 Minute Cheesy Hatch Chile Soup {Primal & Low-Carb}It’s the middle of winter, there’s almost 2 feet of snow on the ground and I’m craving cheesy-comfort food. Using only the ingredients we have on hand, I tossed together a delicious 30 Minute Cheesy Hatch Chile Soup.

Over the summer our friend, Scott, gave us a big bag of roasted hatch chiles (which I’ve kept some in the freezer for a winter meal like this!) and they are the prefect smokey, lightly spicy compliment to a meaty, cheesy soup. While ground beef would work great, I used wild venison instead (and so many of you have been asking for vension ideas, too!).
