Yummy Chicken Black Bean Soup Recipe

Sharing is caring!

I love this yummy chicken black bean soup recipe.  In fact, I would go so far as to say that it is my favorite.  It is hearty, reasonably healthy, and so  yummy.  I also love it because it is easy to make.  Whenever I make salsa chicken (find that recipe here), some of the leftovers always find their way into my soup pot!  Haven’t made my salsa chicken recipe yet?  No worries…you can just substitute a cup of salsa and a cup of cooked, shredded chicken!  You are gonna LOVE this, my friend!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 10 oz. can red enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup salsa chicken (find the recipe here) —-OR 1 cup salsa and 1 cup shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans black beans, drained
  • 1 (15 oz.) can red beans, drained
  • 1 (15.25 oz.) can corn, drained
  • 2-3 large diced garden tomatoes OR 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/8 cup dried minced onions
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can chicken broth

  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • Sour cream and fresh cilantro for garnish

Start with your salsa chicken (to find that you can search "salsa chicken" on my blog's search bar). Measure out one cup of the salsa chicken and throw it in a large pot (OR if you don't want to make salsa chicken, you can use 1 cup cooked, shredded chicken and 1 cup salsa).

In your kitchen strainer, strain the corn, red beans, and black beans.

Once they have drained well, dump them in the pot with the chicken. Also dump in one can of diced tomatoes (I don’t bother to drain the tomatoes) and the remainder of the ingredients.

Once I put the chicken and black bean soup in the bowl, I like to put a little dollop of sour cream and then little bits of cilantro or scallions for garnish.

Once I put the chicken and black bean soup in the bowl, I like to put a little dollop of sour cream and then little bits of cilantro or scallions for garnish.  Sometimes I make a loaf of bread in the bread maker to go with it.
