A zesty Southwestern soup to jazz up your life. If not your life then your taste buds. Because maybe your life doesn’t need it but your taste buds? They always do.
This hearty soup has a range of flavors and colorful ingredients like shredded chicken, spicy jalapeño peppers, red peppers, red onions, earthy black beans, sweet corn, fresh tomatoes, lime, cilantro and buttery avocado. It’s a flavor explosion. A party in a bowl.
The soup is so flavorful it really doesn’t need a lot of accoutrements. It all depends on your mood. You may want to load it up with the usual suspects – sour cream, shredded cheese and tortilla chips. A squeeze of extra lime. But it isn’t necessary.
Cornbread, crusty bread or even a cheese quesadilla would be welcome to join the party too. Sometimes soup doesn’t feel like a complete meal without a piece of bread for dunking.
I’ve included directions for both the slow cooker and the stove top. Because I love you like that.
