30-Minute Cheesy Mexican Chicken Soup Recipe: One Bowl Isn't Enough by Donna John
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.
