Southwest Chicken Soup

Sometimes we just love a bowl of hot spicy soup for lunch or dinner. Just add a salad or a fresh bread and you have a great meal, well with a little dessert of course. This soup is full of southwest flavor and packed with great vegetables and chicken, and sometimes better the day after. We are making Southwest Chicken Soup today and sure hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
