Canteen Chicken Soup is a fun twist on the classic chicken soup. The addition of Southwestern items such as green chilies, corn, bell pepper, and salsa add a bit of punch and sinus-clearing power!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 4 ounces can of green chilies, chopped
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup broken-up baked tortilla chips

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken, pepper, and garlic, and cook about 3 minutes, or until chicken is browned on outside, stirring frequently.
  2. Stir in chicken broth, corn, chilies, salsa and cumin; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink.
  3. Stir in cilantro, ladle into bowls, and serve topped with tortilla chips.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I do this style of soup often. I use a can of tomatoes green chiles instead of the diced chiles and also add a coarsely chopped onion. Grated Monterrey Jack over the tortilla chips and sometimes a dab of sour cream (or creme fresh) when serving gives it a truly Tex-Mex taste. We call it Tortilla Soup.

Everyone wants to know how we can add this to our box, including me! I have a tendency to forget to hunt for it. We are having Mexican pot luck at our church, and this would be just the one to start the meal!

How come your website isn't giving me the option to save this recipe to my recipe file?? Has the process been changed?
