Chicken and Salsa Soup

Decide how zesty you want this soup to be, then choose from mild, medium, or hot salsa.

Recipe Ingredients

1 3/4 cups water
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 pound skinless, boneless chicken, cut into bite-size pieces
1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder
1 (11 ounce) can whole kernel corn with sweet peppers, drained
1 cup chunky garden-style salsa
3 cups broken baked or fried corn tortilla chips
2 ounces Monterey jack cheese with jalapeno peppers, shredded

Method

In a 3-quart saucepan combine water, chicken broth, chicken and chili powder. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 8 minutes. Add corn. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes more. Stir in salsa; heat through.

To serve, ladle soup into bowls. Top with chips and sprinkle with cheese.

Makes 4 servings.

Serving Suggestion: Fix up a 15-ounce package corn bread mix by stirring in a drained 4-ounce can diced green chile peppers before spreading in the pan. Sprinkle with paprika; bake as directed.
