Southwestern Chicken Soup

I love Southwestern style food. I have created a souper (like what I did there?!) simple recipe for some delicious flavors for your taste buds! You can make this in a Crockpot or on the stove!

Ingredients: 

  • 2 Chicken Breast
  • Sprinkles of Kickn’ Chicken Seasoning by Weber (or a blend of your favorite Mexican inspired spices)
  • 1 TBS Chopped Garlic
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 Container (32 ounces) of Chicken Broth
  • 1 Package (12 ounces) of frozen peppers and onions blend (fresh is fine too, if you have it)
  • 1 Package (12 ounces) of Southwest Blend of Vegetables (I prefer Archer Farms from Target which includes corn, black beans, peppers and onions)
  • 1 can (10 ounces) Mexican inspired tomatoes (Tomatoes with chili)
