Chicken Fajita Soup

It's been a little while since I posted a recipe and just this week I tried a recipe for Chicken Fajita Soup that I found on Pintrest - and it turned out delicious! Choosing to make a recipe that is found on Pintrest is always a little bit of an experiment in hoping for the best and holding your breath, right? I'm sure we've all made something that ended up being a Pintrest fail - this soup, was not!

Chicken Fajita Soup

What You Need
- 2 cans of white meat chicken; drained
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 bell peppers; seeded and chopped
- 1 red onion, peeled and chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 15 ounce cans of black beans; drained
- 1 15 ounce can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
- 8 cups chicken broth
- 1 fajita seasoning packet
- salt; to taste
- pepper; to taste 
- 1/2 cup brown rice (optional)
- 1 cup water (optional)

What to Do
1.  In a large 6-8 quart pot over medium heat, add olive oil, bell peppers, onion and minced garlic. Saute the mixture for 3-5 minutes to soften.
2.  Add in the chicken, black beans, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, fajita seasoning packet, salt, pepper, rice and water. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3.  Allow to cool and serve with your favorite garnishes - perhaps some avocado, sour cream. shredded cheese or tortilla chips...or perhaps all of those things?

This soup is incredibly easy to throw together, has a delicious flavor and is filled with veggies and protein! What's not to love? I ate my first bowl of soup just as it came out of the pot and topped my second bowl of soup with a little Mexican blend shredded cheese and some crumbled tortilla chips and it was delicious both ways! 

This Pintrest recipe is a definite keeper!
