30-Minute Cheesy Mexican Chicken Soup Recipe: One Bowl Isn't Enough

With some leftover chicken and a quick trip to the pantry, you can make this creamy chicken and corn soup recipe in less than 30 minutes. This soup recipe has been in my file since my kids were little. After one taste, you'll know why.

Sometimes a handful of chopped cilantro finds its way into the mix, too. This soup reheats well for leftovers the next day. Serve with crushed tortilla chips on top or with baguette slices for dipping.

This looks delicious but as I indicated a lactose alternative the Velveeta and the low sodium broth perhaps is there something I could substitute it looks so delicious but I can't tolerate too much of the heavy chatter thanks so much for any information you can share
