Chicken and Salsa Soup


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


  • 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


  1. In a 3-quart saucepan combine water, chicken broth, chicken and chili powder. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 8 minutes.
  2. Add corn. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes more.
  3. Stir in salsa; heat through.
  4. 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.
