Chicken Taco Soup

Another recipe find that I would like to share. It's fairly simple because you can buy a roasted chicken and then just shred it to use in the soup.

Chicken Taco Soup (chicken chili)
2 T olive oil
1 med onion - chopped
1-2 cans chicken broth (depends on what kind of consistency you want)
2 cans Great Northern beans (drained)
1 can diced green chiles
1 roasted chicken - torn into bite size pieces
salt and pepper if desired
The amount of these next three spices depends on how spicy you want it. My soup still had a little kick to it - but not too spicy for my kids. Just season according to taste.
cumin - I used a little over 1 t
chili powder - I used a little oer 1 t
cayenne pepper - I just sprinkled a little over the top
sour cream
shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
Fritos corn chips
chopped green onion would look pretty too

Saute onions in oil until soft. Pour in broth, beans, chiles and chicken. Season according to taste. Bring to boil - turn down heat and simmer about 10 minutes. Top with sour cream, cheese, chips, green onions and anything else that sounds good.

My kids don't usually go for soup but they seemed to like this. Wes and I really liked it!

Looks like a keeper--especially as we head in to the winter and soup season.
