This soup is probably not meant to be the healthiest, best, "good-for-you" soup; it's meant to be quick, easy, filling, and tasty, and it definitely fulfills that in a big way. The good thing is that you can easily make changes that will up the "healthy" factor: use left-over cooked chicken, add frozen whole kernel corn instead of canned (both of which I may do next time), make your own cream of soup, and on and on. But for a cook who's been at work all day and needs a fast, one-dish meal for a hungry family, this is it!
Sorry...couldn't give it a five. Instead of using all canned goods (because of so much sodium). I went with frozen corn and bag of black beans. Also used real chicken breasts. Cooked the chicken in olive oil and added some seasonings. It takes longer to cook this route, but in the end it was worth it. Made a full to the brim pot, and it was gone before the Chiefs game started.
I found this recipe back in college and it was cost efficient and tastes great! however, I added some spices to the soup to give it more Mexican flare, I added dashes of red pepper, cumin, and chili powder, and serve it over tortillas with sour cream dollops. mmm!
I was amazed at the flavor of this soup. I used two cans of broth and omitted the condensed cream of chicken soup. To get the best flavor-bang, I used Rotel Tomatoes with Green Chiles, Cilantro and Lime. The third time I made this, I used Fiesta Corn, which contained red/green bell peppers. Great with tortilla chips or cornbread.
Nothing fancy, nor the best, but this was a good quick, cheap and modifiable recipe. As others, I was afraid of all the sodium as a health nut. I boiled and shredded chicken, used frozen corn, extra low sodium broth instead of condensed soup, and low sodium cans for the tomatoes and black beans. I also just used a can of diced tomatoes plus a larger can of green chilies. Topped it all off with some tortilla chips and cheese.
This is a great, hearty soup. You can mix and match what goes into it. I always add a little cumin and some other spices per taste and add sour cream and cheese for toppings.
This recipe was delicious! I added jalapenos and chopped onion for heat, as well as a little heavy whipping cream to make it a creamier soup. I also garnished it with a dollop of sour cream and cilantro, and Mexican cheese. Instead of canned chicken, I bought a pound of fresh chicken, boiled it, then shredded and seasoned it(with cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder). I know this was a lot of modifications...but it had a great starting point that is easy to manipulate. Definitely worth trying.
Quick. Easy. Tasty. Yum!!!
