Mexican Chicken Soup

This wonderful recipe is adapted from one found on the Kraft website, and their title for it is Hearty Mexican Soup.   It tastes like a fabulous tortilla soup and one that I'll be making again soon.  I substituted black beans in place of their cannellini  beans and  used Trader Joe's frozen roasted corn, which was wonderful.  I hope you can give this quick, flavorful soup a try! 

1 large onion, chopped
1 Tbsp.  oil 
1 clove  garlic, minced
1/2 tsp.  ground cumin 
4 cups  fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth 
1 can  (15.5 oz.) black beans,  drained and rinsed
1 cup salsa (I used a chipotle salsa and it was great!)
2 cups  shredded rotisserie chicken
1 cup  frozen corn, thawed 
2 green onions, chopped         
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup Mexican style shredded cheese

COOK chopped onions in hot oil in dutch oven on medium heat 6 to 7 min. or until tender. Add garlic and cumin; cook and stir 1 min. 

ADD broth, beans and salsa; stir. Bring to boil. Stir in chicken and corn. Return to boil; simmer 5 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in green onions and cilantro.

SERVE topped with cheese.  Sliced avocados and sour cream, along with crushed tortilla chips are wonderful additions.

  2. YUM Kitty -- and would be easy to lower the carbs!! Love your black/white/red blog decor -- just like my kitchen. I love those little checks :)

    Happy New Year Blessings!

  3. I bought a rotisserie chicken a few months ago. I think I got two or three meals out of it by the time I made soup. It was a surprisingly good deal.

  14. Ole~this looks really delicious, Kitty! We awoke to snow on the ground & this is shaping up to be a good soup day.

    I like the idea of adding the black beans to the recipe. I WISH we had a Trader Joes closer to us. Our nearest is clear up in Beachwood...quite a hike, but next time I'm there, I'll pick up some of their roasted corn. Thanks for the tip!
