When I was on vacation with my friends a few weeks ago, the conversation turned to dinner, specifically a lack of inspiration, everyone seemed to be in a rut. So, everyone made a list of quick and easy things they make for dinner at home and we shared it in an effort to gain some new ideas.
One thing that came up was an idea for Salsa Chicken Soup. I love soup, but sometimes when I get an idea for soup, it never quite comes out like I intended (except for the Loaded Potato Soup, I like that stuff when I make it). This one was really simple, and actually tasted like I wanted it to!
We only discussed the ingredients in general, so even though it’s not scientific, here’s what I did:
Salsa Chicken Soup
2-4 Chicken breasts, cooked and shredded or cut into bite sized pieces
2 cans chicken broth
1 can sweet corn
1 can black beans, rinsed
2 jars salsa (I used 15 oz ones)
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
Combine all of the above and heat it up! I put it in the crockpot on low for an hour or so.
Serve with sour cream, cheese, and tortilla chips:
Like many things, this gets even better after about a day.
Perhaps if I make soup often enough, winter will actually arrive since it hasn’t really shown up here, yet!
Do you have any simple soup recipes?
