This is one of my family's favorite standbys. I always make a double batch and freeze half for another day.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in soup pot.
  2. Add chicken, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook until chicken is done (5-10 minutes).
  3. Add beans, tomatoes, salsa, cumin, chili powder, salt and cayenne (if desired).
  4. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer uncovered for at least 15 minutes. If you have time, simmering for a longer period of time (45 minutes to an hour) is better.
  5. Serve with a scoop of sour cream, grated cheddar cheese, and tortilla chips.
  6. I use yellow bell peppers for their color, but others are easily substited. Add or subtract cayenne as your taste dictates.
