Chicken soup with beans

Chicken soup with beans

Introduction

This was created after a quick exam of the freezer and pantry. It is yummy, simple to make and easy to clean up after since it only uses one pan. This was created after a quick exam of the freezer and pantry. It is yummy, simple to make and easy to clean up after since it only uses one pan.

Ingredients

    1 Tbsp of olive oil
    1 pound of chicken thighs, boneless and skinless, diced to 1 inch cubes
    1 1/2 pounds of chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, diced to 1 inch cubes
    2 cans of dark red Kidney Beans, drained
    2 cans of Goya small white beans, drained
    3 cans of Rotel style diced tomatoes and green chilies (I used Kroger)
    2 cans of Swanson Chicken Broth
    1 whole yellow onion
    2 cloves of garlic
    1 whole poblano pepper, diced
    1 Tbsp. salt
    3 Tbsp. chili powder
    3 Tbsp. ground cumin
    1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro

Directions

Coat the bottom of a large stock pot with olive oil and sweat the onions and pepper. Add raw chicken to pot. Cook over medium heat until chicken is no longer pink, 3 - 5 minutes.

Cover the chicken with chicken broth and tomatoes with chilies and add spices. Add beans and bring to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 40 minutes. Smash the beans to the side of the pot to thicken soup or use immersion blender.

Serving size 3/4 cup.

Serving suggestions: dollop of sour cream or greek yogurt or grated cheese and a wedge of corn bread.

    This should be called "6 Star Chicken Stew!" - 3/30/09

  • My DH loved this, gave it a 5, but DD gave it a 2. It was my 1st experience with Poblano pepper & I was pleased. Just on the verge of being too hot & spicy. DH likes things hotter than I do. He thought it still held the taste even with all the spices. He also liked both the thigh & breast tastes. - 4/13/09
