Cilantro Lime Chicken Taco Soup

In the winter time I am a big soup fan. I have been looking for a good soup recipe lately and I think I found one! It is easy and it tastes great! In fact, the more I make it, the more I like it!

Here are the ingredients. I doubled the recipe when I made it and so I have more pictured here than you actually need if you are making the normal amount. The ingredients include: corn, white beans, black beans, refried beans, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, ro-tel tomatoes, an onion, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, taco seasoning, chicken, and Fritos.

First you chop an onion and 3 cloves of garlic. Once they are chopped you add them to a pot and let them cook for a little bit, stirring occasionally. You want them sauteed but not burned.

Next add the ro-tel tomatoes, the diced tomatoes, and the refried beans.

Stir them together and it will look something like this! Then you can proceed to add the rest of the ingredients. Add the beans, broth, and corn. Drain the corn but not the beans.

Then add the taco seasoning, lime juice, cilantro, and 1-2 cups of shredded chicken.

Stir together and then cover and simmer for 1 hour.

Place individual servings in bowls and top it with avocado, cheese, Fritos, and whatever else you may like! It looks and tastes delicious! Enjoy!
