Mexican Chicken Soup


Mexican Chicken SoupPrivate Yoga Santa Monica Mexican Chicken Soup

Cold weather makes me long for easy, 1 pot meals that I can eat over and over.

This is a nourishing, FULL-OF-FLAVOR soup that can be easily vegetarian by omitting the chicken. The smoked paprika is an important spice for robustness but regular paprika can be used as well.

Serves 4-6. 45 min prep.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 TBSP butter or olive oil
  • 1/4 – 1/2 rotisserie chicken – shredded (organic if possible)
  • 2 cans garbanzo beans (chick peas)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 4 C chicken stock
  • 3 C water
  • 5 carrots, thick cut
  • 1 onion, thick diced
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 bay leaves
  • 2 TSP cumin

Private Yoga Santa Monica Mexican Chicken SoupDIRECTIONS:
