This soup is simplicity at its best. Serve with a bowl of your favorite tortilla chips and let everyone crumble their own.

Ingredients

  • 3 (14 1/2 ounce) cans fat-free less-sodium chicken broth (about 5 1/4 cups)
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar chunky salsa
  • 2 1/2 cups rotisserie chicken, skin removed
  • 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2/3 cup instant rice
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)
  • tortilla chips

Directions

  • Bring the broth and salsa to a boil in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the chicken, beans, and rice. Stir well, turn the heat to low, and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the corn and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the onions. Ladle into soup bowls and serve immediately, breaking tortilla chips on top.
