The title of the recipe really says it all - creamy chili-corn soup with chicken and black beans. This easy, healthy and delicious soup stirs together in minutes making it perfect for a quick lunch or supper.
The recipe is from The Perfect Recipe for Losing Weight and Eating Great , by Pam Anderson. Of all Pam's cookbooks, this is one—brimming with light and healthy recipes that never sacrifice flavor or taste like "diet" food—is the one I use most often.
Most of the rest of the country is well into soup season, but here in Phoenix it's barely beginning now that temperatures finally have dipped into the 80s.
I'm a soup lover who eats soup all throughout the year, regardless of the weather, but this creamy chili-corn soup with chicken and black beans is thick and hearty so I think it tastes better in cooler weather.
How to Make Chili Corn Soup
A hearty easy healthy and delicious soup that comes together in minutes while tasting like it simmered much longer. The secret? Canned creamed corn, black beans, and diced tomatoes.
All you need to do to make this soup is sizzle a little garlic and spices in oil and then dump in the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and simmer for a few minutes. Easy peasy.
The recipe calls for chopped fresh garlic. You could always substitute jarred or granulated garlic/garlic powder if you prefer.
If two tablespoons of chili powder seems like too much, start with a teaspoon or two and then add more to taste.
