Empty Nest Meals, Feeding a Family

Speedy Dinner

Chicken Fajita Soup

I can make this from scratch, but to tell you the truth, it’s just as good from cans.

The fresh ingredients:

Chicken breast – cut bite-sized pieces and cook in a pan with just a little butter, until they are done.

The convenience foods:

Canned diced tomatoes with peppers
Canned black beans
Canned or frozen corn
Canned chicken broth
Diced garlic (I use the stuff in jars)
Cumin, chili powder or a pre-made Mexican spice mix


Tortilla Chips

Dump it all in a pot. Use scissors to mince up the cilantro.  I use a lot of cilantro. I usually put it in a crockpot so I can serve it when it’s convenient, but it can be made at the last minute if necessary.

Serve the chips separately so each person can crumble them into the soup like crackers. 🙂
You don’t need to add salsa unless you want to. I like it spicy.
