Fiesta Chicken Soup from Southern Living


Another recipe from Southern Living’s Rotisserie Chicken Cookbook. Fiesta Chicken Soup. This was by far my favorite!! It had just enough spice and it tasted so good. I had it for lunch for three days in a row and am wishing I made a bigger batch. I really want to make some more and you know what? I think I will do just that!!

The sour cream and cheese toppings made this taste even better. I would truly recommend them, if you like them. This will keep you warm on those chilly days.

  1. Looks yummy!

  2. Yum! That looks super appetizing!

  3. I think I’d substitute the chili-hot beans with something milder and leave out the chiles and just use tomatoes because my family isn’t into spicy – but I love the rest of it, and agree that it would be great for a cold day!

  4. funny story… this post just made me remember that I had groceries in the trunk of my car because I bought chicken. Good thing it’s freezing outside and it had only been maybe 30 minutes.

    Back to your post. I had no idea what I was going to do with the chicken so now I have the perfect meal for tonight

  5. That looks delish!

  6. I’m going to have to try this.

  7. This looks yummy.
