This spicy, creamy and super addictive West African groundnut soup will warm you from the inside out.


1 tbsp RawSpiceBar's berbere
4 lbs bone-in chicken
1 onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
3 carrots, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 jalapeno, diced
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tomato, diced
1 inch fresh ginger, minced
1/2 cup coconut milk
Vegetable oil


1. Rub chicken with berbere spice. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add half the chicken and brown on all sides. Transfer to a platter and brown remaining chicken.
2. Add oil over medium-high heat and add onion, green bell pepper, carrots, garlic, and jalapeno. Cook until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and simmer until reduced by half, about 20 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, stir in remaining sauce ingredients, and let simmer 3-4 minutes.
3. Add chicken and cook 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve with brown rice or quinoa and enjoy!
