Happy, Healthy Kitchen – 15 Minute Mexican Chicken Soup

Happy, Healthy Kitchen – 15 Minute Mexican Chicken Soup

I absolutely love recipes I can throw together and they are ready to put on the table in about 15 minutes. Who doesn’t, right? I got this one from my Multi Talented Girlfriend. I’m sure we all have one of those in our lives. I saw her whip this soup up when she had a house full of unexpected guests on a rainy day. It was so yummy, I went back for seconds. The beauty of this soup is its flexibility to add or substitute according to your taste buds.

1 onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, or less
1-2 poblano peppers, chopped. (substitute jalapenos or green peppers)
1/2 jar roasted red peppers, chopped
1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 jar of marinara or spaghetti sauce
1 cup frozen or canned corn (some extra hominy is yummy)
1/2 cup green salsa (or other kind; pico de gallo would be good too)
1 can chopped chicken (feel free to add leftover or cooked chicken)

Saute onions, garlic and peppers until soft. Throw in the remainder of ingredients, cook on high until hot. Feel free to add broth for your desired consistency. Serve with lime wedges, grated cheese and crushed tortilla chips. (I think cilantro, green onions, avocado or sour cream would also be good toppings). Enjoy!!
