Chicken Taco Soup Recipe

Chicken Taco Soup

Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 20 to 25 minutes

Chilly days mean big pots of soup around these parts. This one combines the flavors of a chicken taco in one warm bowl. Bake up a batch of cornbread to go with this and you're good to go.

What you'll need

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 2 cups cooked kidney beans
  • 2 cups prepared salsa
  • 6 cups chicken stock

Switch the beans to pinto if you like and add sour cream and a sprinkling of cheddar cheese to each bowl for a change of pace.

How to make it

  1. Combine chicken, beans, salsa, stock and seasoning in a 2-quart soup pot.
  2. Bring to a boil and reduce heat until soup is simmering.
  3. Let cook for 15 to 20 minutes so flavors blend well.
  4. Serve and top each bowl of soup with crushed tortilla chips.
