Southwestern Chicken Soup
1 12-ounce jar salsa verde
3 cups cooked chicken pieces (1 small deli-counter rotisserie chicken or leftovers)
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained
3 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup sour cream
tortilla chips (optional)
Empty the salsa into a large saucepan. Cook for 2 minutes over medium-high heat, then add the chicken, beans, broth, and cumin (if desired). Bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Top each bowl with a sprinkling of onions, a dollop of sour cream, and some tortilla chips (if desired). For a soupier dish, use 4 cups of broth.
This blog was born out of a desire to learn how to cook healthy, cost effective meals at home. After eating way too many fast food dinners, I began a quest to find great recipes that were easy and fun to make and most importantly eat! I hope that this blog will be a place to share recipes and cooking advice that will encourage all of us in the kitchen!
