This Mexican Chicken Soup looks like it might be complicated because of it contains so many ingredients AND optional ingredients. HOWEVER…it is insanely simple. It takes no time to whip together and is super satisfying and delicious. (The prep is the most time consuming part…)
Mexican flavours kill me…in a good way. They make everyone in my household so, SO happy. And we eat this soup for the same reason we have taco nights: You can build it however you’d like. That part is perfection. You can even take it a step farther and keep all the parts separate — especially if you don’t like beans…or don’t eat chicken. As long as the broth is HOT and pre-spiced and tomatoes have been added.
Build-A-Soup Mexican Chicken Soup — with or without chicken. haha. This is not a soup (therefore) for Type A’s and those who can’t make decisions.
It is ALSO Winter Dump and Mama Dump Friendly. Just skip the optional corn, sour cream, and cheddar if you’re keeping it “cleanse-friendly”. It’s Spring Dump and Fall Dump friendly if you stick to veg broth or skip the chicken.
With all of this said…it’s still important to use a healthy broth (like this Awesome Bone Broth) and pastured chicken (if using).
