Mexican Chicken Soup

This Mexican chicken soup is chicken soup with a kick! A great use for left-over cooked chicken or start with rotisserie chicken for a quick, hearty, flavourful and soul-soothing soup!

Why you’ll love this Mexican Chicken Soup

It’s chicken soup, with a kick! With Mexican spices, beans, tomatoes, jalapeño and as much hot sauce as you want (or don’t).

This soup keeps well in the fridge, as there is no pasta or rice in this soup to soak up all the broth. Perfect for lunch later.

This soup is a great use for left-over cooked chicken, or start with chicken from a rotisserie chicken.

  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
