Southwestern Chicken and Bean Soup THM-E

Stockpots full of hearty soups are so delicious and filling on busy fall/winter days. This Southwestern Chicken and Bean soup has become a family favorite. I often serve it with cornbread or Multi-grain Sourdough bread. Over the winter months I pressure can black beans to use in this soup or for rice and beans. Sweet corn give just the right amount of sweetness that go so well with the spiciness. You can adjust the seasoning to suit your taste and even add a diced Jalapeno or two if you like more heat. I will freeze individual portions of this soup for school lunches or for a quick meal when I am home by myself.

  1. Good morning! I noticed you suggested baked corn chips…and also in the recipe for southwestern chicken salad in your cookbook. I am wondering where you find baked corn chips? or do you mean baked corn tortilla chips? I looked carefully through the WalMart chip aisle and couldn’t find anything there. Thanks!
