Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup Recipe
A shredded chicken soup flavored with garlic, onion powder, salsa, tomatoes, tomato soup, chili powder, corn, beans and sour cream.
I LOVED this recipe! I've been trying to eat meals with low to no fat and came across this one. I love spicy food so this was right up my alley. I substituted the tomatoes for a can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chiles like Lucky0372 did and black beans for the chili beans. PERFECT. Another thing, I just boiled the chicken for about 20 minutes, took all but 2 quarts water from the pot, then threw everything in and simmered for an hour. It was PERFECT. Very spicy! My husband and I sat on the couch eating the soup with a box of tissues in between us for our runny noses from the spice-lol! I've made this 4 times already and have only had the recipe for a few weeks. For me to make a meal more than once over that time is very rare, so it HAS to be good. I'll be serving this soup to my grandchildren! (Well, I may have to cut down on the spice for them-but I'm keeping it as is for me!
Excellent recipe, and this is how I make it easier on myself. I use a supermarket rotisserie chicken with the skin removed and shredded off the bone. I saute the garlic and onion in the olive oil and then stir in a little flour to absorb the oil. Then I stir in 2 large containers of good quality chicken stock, and add the shredded chicken. I also use the diced tomatoes with the chiles already in them, and I double the amount and omit the whole tomatoes and tomato soup. I use a medium salsa that has black beans and corn already in it too. I also hold off on the sour cream and let each person top their own bowl with corn chips, sour cream, green onions and shredded cheese. Especially good cabin recipe, winter or summer. Yum!
Great recipe. I love spice and this has plenty of it!. I followed several suggestions and cubed the chicken and boiled it in the water and spices (up to adding the salsa) for 20 minutes. I then added everything else. I substituted 2 cans of dice tomatoes with green chills for all the tomatoes, and added 2 cans of black beans and 1 can of chili beans. Omitted the corn. Makes a huge amount so if you cooking for 2-4 people, you may need to half the recipe.
I made this tonight for dinner and it was great. I did everything exactly as the recipe said only I used 4 chicken breasts and fresh parsley since I was out of dried parsley. Even with the chicken cut in half, it was still plenty for the normal recipe. This also made a TON of soup...I ended up freezing most of it afterwards. I topped my bowl with shredded cheddar, an extra scoop of sour cream and some tortilla chips! Excellent...will make this again! *Also I used the full amount of chilli powder and my b/f and I both agree that it wasn't spicy at all.
WOW! WOW! AND WOW! This was the BEST soup I have ever made. It's the perfect blend of spice and thickness, and it's FABULOUS. My one suggestion is if you are health conscious replace the sour cream with plain fat free yogurt. In my opinion plain fat free yogurt tastes very close to sour cream when mixed in with things and it will save you alot of fat and calories!! Again, this was a great recipe!! :)
Definitely a keeper. Nothing to knock you out of your chair, but darn good and with so many ingredients that you can keep on hand, it's a real go-to recipe. Used drumsticks instead of breasts. Replaced the can of whole tomatoes with another can of diced (think next time I'll omit one of the cans. it was very tomato heavy). Left out the soup, seeing how tomato-y it was. Added a can of hominy and replaced a can of chili beans with black beans. Didn't drain the corn (because corn is soooo tasty!). choose a good chunky salsa because it imparts a lot of great flavor to this. Put the sour cream as a dollop on each bowl, instead of mixing it in.
