Mexican Chicken Soup

Super fast and delicious spicy Mexican soup.



  1. Heat oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add onion and jalapeno; cook, stirring often until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic; cook 30 seconds more.
  2. Add broth (low sodium if possible), increase heat to high, and bring to a rapid simmer. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in salsa, bring back to a simmer, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve hot.
  4. Note: servings are approximately 2 1/2 cups. Jalapeno can be left out if soup is too spicy.
