Ingredients to Make This Easy and Hearty Soup Recipe

Ingredients for our easy and hearty soup recipe, canned tomatoes with chipotle peppers, can refried beans, chicken broth, canned chicken breast and canned corn.

The base of this soup recipe is made with chicken or vegetable broth and refried beans.

I prefer the taste of black refried beans to pinto, but either is great!

The combination of these two basic ingredients will give this soup recipe a thick and creamy base.

Next you need canned tomatoes with peppers.

For a more zippier soup add tomatoes with chipotle peppers or tomatoes with jalapeños.

But if you’d like a more mild soup, use a can of RoTel tomatoes with diced green chilies.

Canned tomatoes with chipotle peppers and RoTel diced tomatoes & green chilies.

And the final ingredients in our hearty soup are canned corn and canned chicken breast.

It’s really that easy.

And the best thing is, you can keep these basic 5 ingredients in your pantry for a delicious and fast dinner any time!

Just serve it with a green salad and a slice of toast and you’ve got a complete and satisfying meal in a manner of minutes.

This may be the easiest soup recipe you’ll make.

First, you’ll want to combine the broth and refried beans in a pan over medium heat.

Stir until the refried beans and broth are incorporated.

Combine 5 ingredients for the soup and heat until hot and ready to serve.
