A canning recipe for Chicken Mexican Soup. I came up with this great tasting soup by following safe canning guidelines. I pressure can soup every summer to enjoy through the winter. It is easy and taste great! This recipe makes 7 quarts.

This is EPIC, I made this last Thursday, had jars ready to a call that my family was coming for a 4 day weekend so it never made the first jar..They loved it..served it with fresh lime pico de gallo..and tortillas..made a geat crowd pleaser dinner with not a drop left.I did use black beans as opposed to kidney beans and used an extra can of rotel,one hot one medium..very snappy..I hope the next round makes it into jars!! Bring on the canning recipes!!
