Starving! ... Want a Shortcut version of this Recipe

Grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and shred chicken  (The deli at my grocery store sells shredded rotisserie chicken). 

In a dutch oven, place all ingredients but the chicken, in the pot on medium-high heat to warm. When all cheeses are melted add shredded chicken, turn down the heat to medium, and let the chicken soup cook for 15 minutes. Top with your favorite toppings! Enjoy!

Tips: Soup too thick? thin the soup out with broth.
Soup too watery, add more salsa verde or any add-ins.
