Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup

Submitted by: GOINGFOR20

Introduction

This is SO GOOD. The best part is there's very little prep- just throw it all in the crock pot and dinner's ready in a few hours! This is SO GOOD. The best part is there's very little prep- just throw it all in the crock pot and dinner's ready in a few hours!

Ingredients

    1 pound of chicken breast- cut into bite sized chunks
    2 cans of black beans- drained and rinsed
    4 cups of chicken broth
    1 cup sliced mushrooms
    1 cup frozen corn kernel
    1 jar prepared salsa (16 oz) - I like Medium
    1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 cup light sour cream (to stir in at the end)

    Optional for garnish:
    -shredded cheddar cheese
    -avocado
    -chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Add all ingredients to the crock pot except the sour cream and the optional garnishes. Stir Well.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours.

If you'd like to thicken the broth, use a stick blender to blend up a bit, be sure to leave it somewhat chunky though. If you don't have a stick blender, remove 2 cups of the soup and blend carefully in a regular blender, then mix it back into the rest of the soup.
Stir in 1/2 cup of light sour cream before serving, or add a sponnful to each bowl.

Optional garnishes for each bowl: (not added to nutritional info)
-shredded cheddar cheese
-avocado slices
-chopped fresh cilantro
