Soup Supper Soup

During Lent, our church hosts Wednesday evening ‘soup suppers’. People sign up to bring bread, soup, salad, and desserts, then we have a big pot luck-style supper in our community room. It’s fun. We have a fairly large congregation with four services each weekend, so there’s a lot of people I rarely see, being a creature of habit.(we like to go to church on Saturday nights)

I was still homebound last week, but tonight, my husband I will join in the fun. We’re even bringing a big pot of soup to share. 

A few weeks ago on Facebook, I mentioned I was hungry for new soup recipes. My friend Kerri sent me the following recipe. I tried it out because it involved a lot of cans-which looked easy enough for me!  It was delicious, and even my husband and daughter enjoyed the soup.

So here is the recipe for Chicken Salsa Soup. It’s easy, very tasty, and only takes about 30 minutes to make.  : )

Chicken Salsa Soup

1 14 oz can chicken broth

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 lb boneless chicken breast

2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 can black beans, rinsed

1 16 oz can whole kernel corn (we used the kind that has chopped red peppers) drained

1 cup chunky slasa

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp salt (optional)

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

For garnish: chopped green onion, shredded cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream

* Bring chicken broth, water, chili powder and chicken to boil together in a big pot

*Reduce heat. Cook about 8 more minutes

*Remove chicken from pot, chop/shred. (if not fully cooked, cook a little longer) Then, return chicken to soup

*Add corn, black beans, salsa, seasonings, and simmer

*Think happy thoughts

*Add green onion, if desired

Serve hot, with cheese, chips, and a dollop of sour cream. Double the recipe for leftovers.

    Hi Shelley

    Could you clear something for me re this recipe. Your instructions refer to chili powder, but it is not on the list of ingredients. Is it the cayenne pepper in the seasonings or is it additional chili powder?
