Chicken and Black Bean Soup

June 20, 2011

After a week away from home eating marvelous but not good for me food, I needed something veggie filled and delicious to reset my system to healthy.  I was going to make a straight up black bean soup, but hubs is a carnivore, so that demanded the addition of chicken.  I thought it was a lovely soup, not too heavy, not too spicy.  Hubs thought it needed chips.   I was happy as is or with a small dollup of sour cream.  This makes 5 servings at 488 calories and 20 grams of fat.


  • 14 oz. rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 4 cups black beans
  • 16 oz. salsa
  • 2 poblano peppers, diced
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 tbs cumin
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tbs olive oil

1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
2. Saute the onions and peppers for about five minutes or until just softened.
3. Add everything to your crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
