Mexican Chicken Soup

Mexican Chicken Soup

There’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of hearty warm chicken soup during a cold winter’s day. It’s the best cure after a long day at work when all you want to do is get home quickly and have a lovely meal without all the effort. Well this is exactly what we had in mind when we created this Black Bean & Mexican Chicken Soup recipe.

All the deliciousness of a hearty soup but without having to work in the kitchen for hours to make it. It’s also the perfect way to use that leftover rotisserie chicken in your fridge, or you can just buy slices of ready-cooked chicken and shred them into smaller pieces. 

Our Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste is the star of this recipe alongside our delicious Gran Luchito Cantina Beans! Everything is ready to put together into one pot and make your broth taste even better. 

Finishing your Mexican Chicken soup with crumbled tortilla chips on top is the icing on the cake. You can also add them into any soup, and we guarantee that you will love the amazing crunch and authentic corn taste that our Gran Luchito Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips bring.
