I got this recipe from my sister who is always giving me quick recipes (she has 4 kid!) and it is easy, yummy, and filling!

Definitely a quick and easy soup. I added some sauteed onions and garlic for extra flavor. It was zesty, but I think it still could have used a little more flavor. maybe some cilantro or some taco seasonings. I may even try a pepperjack cheese. Thanx for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) can corn, drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained (you can use chili beans instead if you want)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1 (8 ounce) can rotel, undrained
  • 10 ounces canned chicken, drained (or you can use 1-1/2 cups cooked chicken)
  • 1 lb Velveeta cheese, cubed


  1. Combine all ingredients in a 3-qt. saucepan.
  2. Cook and stir until the cheese is melted.
  3. Garnish with sour cream and/or tortilla chips if desired.
  4. If you want you can also put cottage cheese on top instead of the sour cream which will give you that sour cream sensation without the fat.
