Submitted by: ISOLDE316

Introduction

I developed this recipe when it snowed in Knoxville, TN to warm up! Really yummy with lots of different proteins; feel free to add or change up vegetables as seasonally appropriate.

Ingredients

    4 Chicken Breasts (boneless, skinless)
    1 Tbl olive oil
    1 red onion (diced)
    1 cup Brown rice, long grain (cooked)
    1 cup Pinto beans (canned)
    1 cup Black beans (canned)
    1 cup Great Northern beans (canned)
    1 cup Corn (canned)
    1 cup Chopped spinach (frozen)
    1 can Diced tomatoes
    15 Baby carrots (sliced)
    4 cups chicken stock or broth
    2-4 cups water (depending on how thick you like it)
    1 Tbl chili powder
    .5 Tbl cumin powder
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Garnish:
    Dollop of Sour cream, sprinkle with cheddar cheese, serve with tortilla chips on the side.

Directions

Rub the chicken with about half of the seasonings (chili powder, cumin & garlic powder). Cook in a non-stick pan with the olive oil, about 4 minutes on each side at a medium-high heat.

Remove the chicken from the pan, cut into bite sized pieces, and set aside. Add the diced red onion to the pan and cook briefly, just enough to bring out the flavor of the onion but not until caramelized.

In a large stock pot, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for at least 20 minutes (or until carrots are cooked through). Season to taste; I prefer a very spicy soup so add about double as much chili powder. Feel free to keep on the stove on a low heat for up to an hour to bring out the flavor of all the beans and vegetables.

Garnish each bowl with a small dollop of sour cream, a sprinkling of cheddar cheese and a half serving of tortilla chips.

Makes 12 1-cup servings.
