Dear Boys,
Looking for something to do with all the chicken you got on sale?

This is a good option, especially if it’s cold outside.

Put 1-2 cups diced chicken in a pot.

Add 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. garlic powder, and 1 tsp. salt.

Then add 1 cup salsa,

1 can cream of chicken soup and 1 soup can of water.

Next add a 12-oz. bag frozen corn and

a 14.5-oz. can of black beans.  I had cooked a bag of dried black beans and frozen them, so that is what I used.  Either works great.  The dried ones will save you a bit of money.

Next comes 1 can Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies and
1/2 cup sour cream.

Now stir all these ingredients together and simmer on low until heated through.  This also does nicely in a crock pot if you need to leave it unattended.

I recommend garnishing with fresh cilantro, shredded cheddar and a little more sour cream.

And, of course, soup tastes best if you double the recipe and share it with friends.
