This fiesta chicken and black bean soup is so delicious and deceptively easy. My favorite kind of recipe!

But maybe more importantly, when you’re bundled up inside and the snow is piling up on the roads, most of the ingredients are things you likely have on hand or in your pantry (or your freezer for the peppers and onions).

Depending on the salsa you choose, this soup can be very mild or a little spicy, perfect for a last-minute, cold-weather meal.

This recipe makes 4 generous servings or 6 smaller servings and also freezes very well if you have leftovers.

Steps

1
Done

Chop the onion and pepper. Combine the salsa, onion, and pepper and cook over medium heat until the vegetables are just tender.

2
Done

Add the chicken and black beans, then stir in the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat.

3
Done

Add quinoa and cover. Allow to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the quinoa is completely cooked.

Done

Serving Suggestion

Fiesta Chicken and Black Bean Soup with Quinoa is delicious as is, but also tastes great with a sprinkle of cheese or squeeze of lime.

I love that this soup can be made with ingredients from the pantry, but if you prefer to make it from fresh ingredients it’s easy to substitute shredded rotisserie chicken for the canned.

If you’d like a side, a slice of whole wheat bread is perfect!

I love gelato, asparagus, and my basset hound, Fred. I'd rather be reading than cooking, so I'm always looking for ways to make things easier in the kitchen.
