Chicken Taco Soup

Delicious kickin' chicken taco soup.



  1. Grill the chicken breast and then chop to small bite size pieces.
  2. In large stock pot, heat the extra virgin olive oil and then add onion and garlic, stirring and cooking for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes, green chilies, cumin, taco seasoning (to taste) and chicken, stirring and cooking for about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the beans, chicken broth, and water. Salt and pepper to taste. You can add more cumin and taco seasoning if you like more spice, too.
  5. Bring to a boil and then turn to low and simmer for 20 minutes or longer, an hour wouldn't hurt it one bit! Add the cilantro about 5 minutes before serving.
  6. Optional to add about 10 sliced button mushrooms sliced and also top with a dollop of fat free sour cream or fat free plain yogurt to your liking!
  7. Note: we enjoyed this with a nice green salad with homemade balsamic dressing, sprinkled with some sunflower seeds and some brown rice cooked with some basil.

Sounds delish? I make one almost identical to this but add black beans. And don't do the green chiles but that sounds like a great touch. I will have to start adding those in to kick it up a notch!! Yummy!

Umm, Umm good. I made it with Northern Bean instead of cannellin beans. Diced tomatoes instead of stewed. So good.

If it's too rich, feel free to add more water to thin it out a bit. :)
