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 cheesy Mexican chicken soup recipe has been in my recipe file since my kids were little. After one taste, you'll know why. Not only that, has minimal prep, pantry ingredients and cooks up quickly, no simmering on the stove for hours. 

The ingredient list is full of pantry staples. Here's what you'll need for this easy soup: three cans of cream of mushroom soup, a can of chicken broth, a package of frozen corn, a can of tomatoes with green chiles, a can of cream-style corn, a box of processed cheese (aka Velveeta), cooked and shredded chicken and fresh garlic. 

This is a great way to use leftover chicken, or buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Sometimes a handful of chopped cilantro finds its way into this creamy soup and adds flavor and freshness. This easy cheesy soup reheats well for leftovers the next day. 

Serve a hot bowl of this cheesy Mexican chicken corn soup recipe with crushed tortilla chips on top or with baguette slices for dipping.

Recipe Notes

  • If you don't have leftover chicken, cook a large chicken breast, cool and shred. You could cook it in a skillet or boil it. 

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large pot. 
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, about 20 minutes.

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
