Chicken, Black Bean & Salsa Soup

I have been making this soup for years, lots of times for company.  Everyone enjoys it, and it’s an absolute cinch to make.

, Chicken, Black Bean & Salsa Soup,

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 1/2 c cooked cubed or shredded chicken (sometimes I use the canned chunk chicken from Sam’s Club)
  • 43 ounces chicken broth
  • 1 16 oz jar salsa (chunky style works best)
  • 1 15 1/2 oz can drained and rinsed black beans
  • 1 cup corn kernels (frozen or canned, but drain canned)
  • 2/3 c instant brown or white rice

Optional additions for garnish:

  • Cheddar cheese
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • Tortilla chips or Frito’s
  • Sour cream
  • Cheddar cheese
, Chicken, Black Bean & Salsa Soup,

Put everything in a saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes. Garnish as desired. This recipe is so adaptable, if you think it needs more liquid just add more broth or salsa, which I frequently do.

I often make this for a crowd, and use my crock pot and double the above recipe. It works great this way too.  I just cook it on high for 4-5 hours till heated through well.
