Taco Soup

It's getting to be "soup" weather. Here is one of our favorites--Taco Soup!

Taco Soup

2 - 3 chicken breasts
1 can Mexi-corn
1 can black beans
1 small salsa or picante sauce (mild)
2 cups chicken broth

Boil the chicken in water with salt, a piece of celery and a small onion. Takes about 30 minutes to cook. Save 2 cups of broth and put into a pot. You can use canned or boxed chicken broth if you'd like, but I figure if you're boiling chicken anyway, you may as well use the broth. Right?

Cut chicken breasts into pieces and put into pot. Add 1 can of Mexi-corn. Drain beans and add to soup (you can rinse beans if you'd like or put the beans in, liquid and all). Pour in the small salsa or picante sauce. Mix together and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 10 minutes.

Serve with tortilla chips. Delicious and Easy! We always double the recipe because everyone eats seconds or thirds--even fourths!.

My kids love to put sour cream and cheese in their soup before eating. Me--I'm just a plain Jane and eat it like it is. I always scoop it up with tortilla chips. I don't use my spoon until the very end so I can get every last drop!
