Healthy Sante Fe Chicken Soup

I stumbled upon this recipe and changed it up. It originally had beef in it. I was looking for healthier dishes for my brother. He had been in the hospital with heart problems and he needed to eat for a healthier heart. I wanted to find something tasty and appealing. Food doesn't have to be bland to be healthy. Once he got out of the hospital I took a pot of this soup to him and his wife.

I've put a jar of homemade salsa in this dish when I didn't have tomatoes with green chile's. And, it was as good if not better.

If you don't have all 3 of the different beans, replace with what you have on hand.

Enjoy!
