another day...another soup. i didn't even notice until i sat down to write this that we apparently have been on a soup kick lately.
anyway, as part of my project: organization i have continued on with my pinterest - found meals, and this was another hit at the thompson hizzy.
now, i am going to apply the term "chili" to this recipe only because that's what the original source says, but honestly, it's much more like a tortilla soup in my opinion.
and i apologize for not taking some wonderfully glamorous instagram photos for you all to drool over. i realized after i sent the last of the soup with the hubs today for lunch that i didn't get around to it. woops.
- 1 tablespoon EVOO
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 cups cooked chicken
- she uses a rotisserie chicken and shreds it.
- since i am on a super-tight budget, i used 3 chicken breasts, cubed them, sauteed in the EVOO with s & p, oregano, cumin, a little chili powder and anything else i felt like sprinkling in there. doing it this way, i made the entire recipe for less than what a rotisserie chicken costs. boo yah.
- 2 cans great northern beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can corn, drained
- 1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 1 box (32 ounces) chicken broth
- salt and pepper to taste (i use coarse sea salt and fresh ground pepper)
- 1 lime, juice
get ta' cookin':
- in a large stock pot, heat your EVOO, throw in your chicken, season and sear.
- add the onions and cook until they are almost translucent
- add the lime juice and green chilies. i like to let everything simmer here for just a minute.
- add the beans, corn, cumin, oregano and broth.
- stir and bring to boil, then reduce your heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
- serve however you'd like!
- i added some sour cream, colby and monterey jack cheese and tortilla strips. i forgot the cilantro at the store, otherwise it would've been on there too:)
super-dee-duper easy "chili" and this is one of those soups that gets better as each day passes! even better news: SUPER low in calories, high in fiber and protein! (just omit the sour cream, cheese and chips...)
my only complaint is that this recipe doesn't make a very big batch...so next time i'll probably double it:)
