Spicy Chicken Soup

I love Fall. I love the weather, the colors, the holidays and of course the flavors that Fall brings. One of the things that I love to cook in the Fall is soup. I discovered this Spicy Chicken Soup recipe a few years ago, did some minor tweaking and it is now what I consider the perfect Fall soup. It is hearty and filling and just the thing to welcome loved ones home with on a cold dark Fall night.
Spicy Chicken Soup (Serves 8-10)
~printer friendly version~
8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 tablespoon onion powder
3 tablespoons chili powder
5 cubes chicken bouillon
1 (16oz.) jar chunky salsa
2 (14.5oz.) cans peeled, diced tomatoes
1 (10.75oz) can condensed tomato soup
1 (15oz.) can whole kernel corn, drained
2 (16oz.) cans chili beans, undrained
1 (8oz.) container sour cream
Put the chicken breasts in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Then cover and simmer on low for 30 minutes.
While the chicken is cooking, heat the garlic and onions in the olive oil over medium heat until browned. Then set aside.
Remove the chicken from the pot and reserve 5 cups of the broth. Shred the chicken.
Here is the fun part! Dump everything into the big pot, the garlic onion mixture, the chicken, the 5 cups of broth, and every other ingredient listed… Give it a stir and let it simmer for at least 30 minutes.
Serve it hot topped with shredded cheese and crushed tortilla chips.

This soup makes a lot, leftovers can be frozen and enjoyed again later :)

    Hi Colleen! Yes, the kids all eat it. Drew picks out and eats mostly the beans. The other two like theirs to be covered in cheese but eat it up.

    Well….I TRIED to make this soup. However, I had to make so many substitutions, it really couldnt be called the same recipe. I dont know what I was thinking when I went to the store. So I'll let you know when I attempt it again. But the sour cream is a definate plus!
    Oh, I have a question. By "chili beans" do you mean like Nalley or Dennison beans already prepared?

    I think you can't go wrong with this soup even with lots of substitutions and yes, the sour cream makes it awesome! Chili beans are canned pinto beans in a chili sauce. Most stores carry them in their bean section :)

    I made this tonight and used my immersion blender right before serving it….it was so yummy. I also used my crockpot to heat it and it filled up the whole thing so I was able to share it with another family. This is one of my go-to recipes…yum!
