Southwest Chicken Soup
Okay, I feel a little guilty eating this soup as it is on the rich side but oh so good. It is not only really good but gives a bite if you double up the peppers! One of my sweet daughter in law's treated our family with with soup and now it is a family staple soup for us!
1 large onion (chopped)
1 garlic clove minced (fresh garlic sets this off!)
1/2 tsp olive oil
2 cups chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup*
2 cups cubed or shredded chicken
1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilies, drained
2 cans cream style corn (14 oz.)
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Step one: Saute onion and garlic in olive oil.
Step two: Stir in broth, soup, chicken, and chilies. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; stir in corn, 1/2 n 1/2, chili powder and cumin. Heat through but don't boil.
Garnish with shredded cheese and chopped cilantro
*Anytime you have a can cream soup, you can adapt this with a white sauce and adding a natural flavoring. I have a natural powder chicken gravy mix I got at the health food store. I simply add 2 tbs. of the powder chicken gravy mix to the white sauce.
Note from Paula: I double this recipe as we eat it so fast. You can also garnish this soup with tortilla chips. It is a great Mexican soup!
