I have been making this for months and I can't believe I'm just writing the review. I use chicken sauteed in olive oil and onion and garlic or leftover chicken/turkey--I haven't actually used canned chicken yet. Sometimes I add a pinch each of chili powder and cumin. I garnish with sour cream (a must) avocado fresh cilantro a little lime juice and the crumbly left-overs in the gigantic Costco bag of tortilla chips DH MUST buy every time. I don't drain the cans. My parents and sisters wre soooo impressed when I threw this together in minutes using leftover chicken while visiting for Easter. MUST TRY!
5 stars for easy! I did delete 1 can of chicken broth and added 1 can of cream of chicken soup. I also added 1 Tbls. cumin 1 Tbls. Chili powder some garlic and a few shots of hot sauce tooo! Served with tortilla strips sourcream and chedder!
4 Stars as written but 5 Stars with minor changes: I used a rotissery chicken the entire can of Rotel Diced Tomatoes with Lime & Cilantro drained and rinsed black beans & a can of Cream of Chicken soup. I also added a tsp of Emmeril's Essence. The soup had body flavor and a very nice "heat" factor. Ladle over chips top with cheese & sour cream and you'll have a killer one-dish meal on your hands that was super easy to prepare! Yummo!
I love this. It is SO easy on those busy days. This year for Christmas I made boxes up for friends with all 6 cans and a note: "Busy Day Blessing" with the recipe. Thanks for the creative Christmas gift idea for all my busy friends!
Followed other tips and did 1 can broth 1 can cream of chicken turned out much richer and heartier this way. Use fresh chicken(buy a pre-cooked rotisserie and shredding it taste so much better fresher and gives more of a homemade taste. And rinse the beans before adding or else it will turn the broth a dark unappealing color. Add fresh chopped cilantro right before serving with some toasted tortilla strip (or can use crushed tortilla chips in a pinch). I also used frozen corn the 3rd time and was better! Good base and with a few additions turns out restaurant style soup.
Extremely easy and very tasty. Everyone liked this soup. My husband prefers thicker soup so I followed the advice of other raters reviewers and used 1 can chicken broth and 1 can of cream soup (I used fiesta nacho cheese cream soup instead of chicken - yummy!). I plan to try it with 2 cans of broth as well.
I have been using this recipe for a few years and have not said "THANK YOU!!!" Like others I have made some minor changes: I use a store-bought rotisserie chicken 1 can reduced fat cream of chicken and one can broth 1/2 bag frozen corn 1 can kidney beans and 1 can black beans (well rinsed and boiled to get rid of the xs gas) chili ready or jalapeno tomatoes with juice 1 can of green chiles some white onions 1/2 packet of taco seasoning and your choice of toppings...healthy as you make it...THANKS TERRYN for a truly great easy healthy classic recipe!
This recipe is a great base to work with -- I don't think you can mess it up! Go with fresh chicken breast if you can and boil it in the broth as the first step. I have also used store bought rotisserie chicken even left over turkey. You can also use bouillon when no broth on hand. My tips: 1. Add any fresh veggies you have on hand such as carrots onion bell pepper mushrooms and it will taste completely homemade. 2. Any canned beans work but rinse them off first. 3. To thicken the soup & give a nice flavor put about 3 corn tortillas or a couple of hand fulls of corn chips in the food processor then add the corn "flour" to the soup and simmer a few minutes..it will add a nice complexity and taste even BETTER the next day. Add or leave out what you want to make this recipe low fat low carb vegetarian...it would even be great with left over seafood...mmm! (To be fair I must note that I'm prejudiced against can chicken.)
