Hearty Healthy Chicken Soup


Another batch of Yummy soup. This is a real comfort style soup. Lots of great veggis and chicken. The whole family really likes this one. So good, with some fresh soft rolls. My friend Stacy has a good roll recipe we’ll be cooking up later this week. Enjoy!

Hearty Chicken Soup

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
½ Cup red bell pepper, finely diced
½ Cup white onion, finely diced
2 Tablespoons jalapeno, minced (seeded and membranes removed)
3 cloves garlic, minced

2 14 oz cans chicken broth
3 Tablespoons tomato paste
1 can northern beans, undrained (white beans)
1 can drained corn kernels
2 Cups thinly sliced fresh spinach leaves, stems removed
2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped or shredded
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 Tablespoons Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning Mix

1. Heat olive oil in a large dutch oven or pot over medium heat. Saute carrots, celery, bell pepper, onion and jalapeno for 5-8 minutes stirring frequently. Stir in garlic and cook for 2 minutes.

2. Stir in remaining ingredients, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve with fresh rolls. Enjoy!

    I am anxious to try this tonight. Will it work out if I omit the corn? Alaina is allergic?

    Hi Stermy,
    It will be fine without the corn, maybe add another vegetable that works with your family. Anything would do. Hope you enjoy. Cullen is begging me to make it again this week! Talk to you soon.

    I’ve never thought myself a soup girl, but I can’t get enough of this soup! My husband took all the leftovers for his lunch today… I’m wishing I had some to eat on this cold overcast rainy day! Mmmm! I loved the kick that the jalepeno gave. Great recipe!
