  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 12 ounces salsa (I used red, but green would be good too)
  • 2 cans (about 15 ounces each) white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups chopped cooked lean chicken
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, optional
  • Garnish with cilantro, cheese, corn chips, etc., if desired


  • Empty the salsa into a large saucepan. Cook for 2 minutes over medium-high heat, then add the chicken, beans, broth, chili powder and cumin (if desired).
  • Bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Alternatively, to make in a slow cooker, add all ingredient into your slow cooker and cook covered on low until hot, about 4 to 6 hours. 
  • Use a masher or immersion blender to mash up some of the soup and make it a little thicker if desired.
  • Top each bowl with a sprinkling of green onions or cilantro, a dollop of sour cream, and or some low-fat baked tortilla chips (if desired).
  • Makes about 8 cups of soup.
