Southwest Chicken and Bean Soup

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

Like a mild chili but soupier, a recipe adapted from "Living the G. I. Diet". Substitute whatever canned beans you have on hand, or turkey for the chicken. If using previously cooked chicken, add it at the end to heat through, or it will overcook.
