Directions See How It's Made
- It is important to add the liquid from ALL canned ingredients (except from the black beans) in order to get the rich flavor.
- Cook chicken with a little bit of garlic salt and slice into squares when completely cooked.
- On a medium heat, add the cooked chicken, corn, diced tomatoes, green chiles, olives, lime juice and enchilada sauce into a large pot.
- Drain black beans and add them to the rest of the ingredients. Continue to simmer for 20 minute.
- While soup is simmering cut cilantro. Do not add to the soup until ready to serve or it will turn a wilted yellow-green color.
- Once soup is served, add desired toppings. Bon appétit!
