Super Simple Southwest Chicken Soup

Two words: Simply yummy! I am hoping to get some baking done tonight and needed a quick and easy recipe for dinner, and I came across this one. My husband has always been a big fan of chicken tortilla soup and I've been a big soup kick lately anyhow, so this sort of just feel into place. We were both HIGHLY impressed with how well this turned out, especially for how easy it is to put together. We will definitely be adding this to our menu of dinner items, which is great since I'm still sans dairy and soy which leaves our menu rather weak.


1 can Corn (15 oz)
2 cans Chicken Broth (14.5 oz)
1 can Black Beans, rinsed (15 oz)
1 can Rotel (10 oz)*
1/4 tsp Cumin
1/4 tsp Chili Powder
1/4 ts[ Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp White Pepper

Sliced Avocado
Lime wedges to squeeze
Shredded Cheese
Tortilla Chips

*Rotel is diced tomatoes and green chili's. I used the one with lime and cilantro and hope to always use this one with this recipe, it was fantastic!

**I used an 8 oz package of pre-cooked chicken for ease of preparation. I was going to use a store bought Rotisserie chicken, but it had whey protein which I can't have. It was great with the chicken we used but I can see how the rotisserie would have been better.


Combine all ingredients through white pepper in large sauce pan. Bring soup to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer. That's it. Seriously. Serve with your choice of toppings, but I suggest them all. You can adjust the spiciness as needed.

Now, I of course ate it without the cheese and it was wonderful, although I can definitely see how the cheese would make it better. 8 months and counting until I can verify that.
