Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes* 28 ounces
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 can black beans (15 ounces) drained and rinsed
  • 1 can whole kernel corn (15 ounces) drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup cooked chicken shredded
  • Jalapeño sliced
  • Colby cheese shredded
  • Avocado cubed
  • Green onions sliced
  • Tortilla strips
  • Cilantro chopped
  • Lime wedges

Instructions

  • In a large pot, add oil, onion and garlic. Sauté over medium heat until onions and garlic are translucent and fragrant. Add oregano, cumin, tomatoes, and chicken stock. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • If you like soups that are more on the chunky side, skip this step. Place the pot away from the stove and place a hand blender inside the pot to blend all the ingredients until desired consistency. You can also transfer the soup to a high-speed blender and blend that way too.
  • Once you the soup is blended and in the pot, add the black beans, corn, and shredded chicken. Simmer for another 10 minutes.
  • Ladle soup into bowls. Top with jalapeño slices, shredded Colby cheese, cubed avocado, green onions, tortilla strips, cilantro and don’t forget that squeeze of lime. Enjoy!

Notes

*You can also use a can of regular diced tomatoes and add cayenne powder to taste.
