Busy Day Mexican Chicken Soup

Busy Day Mexican Chicken Soup

(from Penny Thoughts)

1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 can Rotel tomatoes (diced tomatoes with green chilies)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 cans chunk chicken breast (use cooked fresh chicken breasts if you have more time)
2 to 3 cans chicken broth, depending on how soupy you like your soup
1 teaspoon chili powder, or more to taste (I like more)
1 teaspoon cumin, or more to taste (I like more of this too)

Step 1: Put all ingredients into a pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until veggies are tender.  This won’t take long at all-just a few minutes.

Step 2: Uh, that’s it!  Serve with chopped fresh cilantro.  (Tortilla chips and cheese are good too, though not at all healthy.)
