I use boneless, skinless chicken thighs as that's where the flavor is. Also I preseason the chicken prior to grilling it first. This gives it a good seer to lock in juices and adds a smokiness to it, slice it up then introduce to recipe. Cilantro and diced green onions are another addition opted for during the simmer phase.


Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large soup kettle. Saute onion and garlic until soft. Add cubed chicken and cook until done.
  2. * I sometimes use precooked chicken to save a couple minutes prep time or use up leftovers.
  3. Add broth, spices ,black beans, tomatoes, and corn. Bring to a boil, and then let simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Can also be cooked in the crockpot rather than on the stovetop -- in fact. the longer it cooks the tastier it is. Freezes well also.
