This delicious yet simple Chicken Taco Soup is made in less than thirty minutes right on the stovetop using already cooked rotisserie chicken. It is bursting with fresh flavors from corn, black beans, fire roasted tomatoes and green chiles. My whole family really enjoys this soup and I love it because it is a quick, easy and wholesome recipe. Although it is a hearty meal by itself if company is coming I love to serve this delectable soup with cornbread and Doritos Taco Salad.
