Spicy Chicken Taco Soup

I needed a recipe to use up the last of my chicken and the stellar stock that I made from it. I couldn’t find a recipe for chicken tortilla soup that was healthy enough or flavorful enough. So I just threw a bunch of things together and it turned out pretty well!

Ingredients

2 1/2 Cups Chicken Stock

1 cup of water

1/4 cup lime juice

1 cup shredded and pre-cooked chicken

3 stalks celery

1 small onion

1/4 cup chopped jalapeño peppers

1 1/2 cups frozen corn

1 can black beans

1 can white butter beans (or any other bean that you think would be good)

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cumin

Salt and pepper to taste

Chop up vegetables coarsely, add all ingredients to a saucepan or crockpot. Heat on stove until boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. If in slow cooker, cook on medium for    2-3 hours. Top with plain greek yogurt, shredded cheese, and crushed tortilla chips.

The whole time I was eating this I wished I could pair it with a frozen margarita, it just seemed like that would of been the best combination.

You can also add tomatoes, I just didn’t have any at home.

I couldn’t accurately add the nutrition information for this recipe because I don’t know what  my homemade stock facts would be. Sorry guys!

Whats your favorite Margarita recipe!?
