Claire’s Chicken Taco Soup

Claire Hollek, a fellow foodie and great friend of mine, is the taco soup queen.  This recipe takes NO time and is a major hit with everyone…especially our hungry husbands!

Chicken Taco Soup Ingredients
finely chopped onion
olive oil
2 packages of taco seasoning
2 cloves of garlic chopped
2 15-ounce cans of diced tomatoes
2 4-ounce cans of green chilies
3 cups of chicken broth
2 8-ounce cans of green salsa (Claire likes ARIBA Fire Roasted Mexican Green Salsa)
2 15-ounce cans of black beans
2 15-ounce cans of pinto beans
1 rotisserie chicken deboned and shredded

  1. Cook chopped onion in large pot with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  2. Add all other ingredients to pot and let simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.  You can serve immediately, but the flavors get better and better with time…
  3. Garnish with avocado slices and tortilla chips.

Can you believe that’s it?!  As Claire says – if you can open cans, you can make this hearty crowd pleaser…

It’s great right away and great left over – what a beautiful thing.  So many taco/tortilla soup recipes out there are labor-intense and seem to be a bit flavorless.  However, Claire’s Chicken Taco Soup is a POW of flavor that chicken tacos WISHED they tasted like!!  I think it has even more flavor than the Chunky Chicken Tortilla Soup that my mom and I make…I’ll admit it…

Just try it…you’ll like it.

Zach-and-Nathan-o-meter: Our husbands are hunnnngry, meat eatin’ men and they devour this recipe with total satisfaction.  They will eat it for multiple meals back-to-back and we have to convince them to switch it up!

PS – Claire calls this “Bradley Fox’s” Chicken Taco Soup, but I don’t know Mr. Fox…and as far as I’m concerned, this is Claire’s Chicken Taco Soup – and darn good taco soup at that.  Enough said.
