This is one of my favorite soups to make. It is healthy and so easy. Seriously it is the most seamless way to make soup, it takes just an hour to make and if you buy everything pre-cut from Trader Joe's so there is no prep time. It is my convenience go to dinner. Served with toasted Ezekial bread with lite butter and crushed garlic, it is the ultimate healthy impostor for comfort food, minus the high calories and fat. I make mine on the spicy side.

Here is the recipe supported by photos to show how easy it is, and if you cannot find a Trader Joe's to buy all of the ingredients you could substitute the same ingredients from another grocery store.


Chopped onion, shallots and garlic, saute' this in three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil 
add 1 packet of Mirepoix mix( chopped onion, celery, and carrots), saute' until carmelized about three minutes.
add 1 packet of frozen pepper strips, mix all ingredients together
add 3 cans of fire roasted tomatoes
add 1 packet of roasted frozen corn
add one can of organic black beans ( lower in sodium I find)
add pre-cooked low sodium just chicken and 1-2 cartons low sodium vegetable broth
Mix all ingredients together, spice with a little sea salt, ground pepper, and cayenne to taste

Cook for one hour on low and garnish with fat free sour cream or Greek yogurt.
It is one of our favorite dinners to make, and you can change it up if you please. So easy and quick and perfect for my weekdays when I am working and working out. I hope you enjoy adding a little spice to your weekdays with my Easy Chicken Chili Soup.
Happy Eating
