Black bean chicken soup

  • some black beans (if using canned, about 2 cans, drained - honestly i didn't measure mine - they were frozen cooked dry beans) 
  • 4-6 chicken tenders, or 1-2 chicken breasts (raw)
  • olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 large onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cans (or equivalent)  of diced tomatoes
  • 8 oz of chicken or veggie broth 
  • 1 can (or equivalent) of corn
  • 1tbs cumin
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (more if you used no canned veggies, less if you used all canned veggies)

Heat a bit of oil in a large stock pot, add garlic, onion, celery and cut up chicken.  Saute until chicken is done. 

Add broth, tomatoes, corn, black beans, and spices.  Simmer for 30-45 mins or more. 

serve with tortilla chips - and if you're not dairy free, this would be fabulous with sour cream and cheddar on top. 


oh and i made this bread today. isn't it lovely?
