Chicken Salsa Soup

Good grief when was the last time I posted a recipe around here?! Well found one last night that I had to make dinner in a pinch.  This was a yummy soup that was quick and tasty as soon as I put it on the table I barely had time to take this picture and there wasn't much leftover.

Chicken & Salsa Soup
32 oz box of chicken broth
1 1/2 cups chunky mild salsa
3/4 cup frozen corn
1 cup of cooked chicken diced
1 cup cooked rice
tortilla chips
shredded chedder cheese

In a pot bring to a boil the broth and and salsa then add corn, chicken and rice.  Cook till everything is heated through.  Ladle into bowls top with chips and cheese and enjoy.

I love this because it's great to use up any leftover chicken and rice which then brings it all together for a meal.  While I was eating  this soup I thought the only thing missing was maybe some beans.  I'm thinking next time to make it vegetarian I'll use vegetable broth and skip the chicken for red or white beans.  Skip the cheese and it's dairy free.

Enjoy your weekend!

Ooh, good idea. I have some extra salsa. Now all I have to do is remember to soak some beans so I can make some soon!

Glad to see you're still cooking up a storm.
