Southwest Chicken Soup

Mary Snowdon


This is one of our favorite soup recipes. Seems I turn to this when its a rainy day.
You can change up the type of beans used with what you may have in the pantry as well as use chopped cooked chicken breasts or go vegan
Kids will love the taste and will not know they are eating such a healthy dish.
