Helloooo soup weather!! Is there really anything more comforting than a big bowl of soup to warm you up?! I think not! And while some soup recipes take all day to cook and simmer, this one is an exception. In just thirty minutes, you’ll have a beautiful pot of soup on the table, full of hearty chicken and Tex-Mex flavors!
CHEF’S CRAFT® chicken makes getting nutritious protein into recipes super (or shall I say SOUPer?!) simple. For example, these flame grilled chicken breast fillets are sous vide (aka cooked to perfection!), individually wrapped and frozen. When you need chicken, you simply boil the individually-wrapped packages, open and dice the chicken breasts for quick, protein-packed, JUICY chicken!

Creamy Chicken Taco Soup Ingredients
- Chicken: I love to use the CHEF’S CRAFT® Flame Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets, simply because of the ease of prep and the excellent flavor. However, you could dice up leftover grilled chicken or use shredded rotisserie chicken.
- Chicken Broth
- Black Beans: You can use regular or the low/no-sodium black beans. Either way, you’ll drain and rinse them before using.
- Tomatoes with Green Chilies: Be sure to look at the label before you purchase these – they are sold with varying levels of heat. If you want to keep the soup pretty mild, use the original.
- Corn: You can either use a can of whole kernel corn (drain) OR use 1 ½ cups of frozen corn or homemade sweet corn cut off the cob.
- Taco Seasoning
- Minced Onion
- Cream Cheese: You can use regular or the 1/3 less fat cream cheese;, however, I find that the regular cream cheese melts into the soup better.
- Toppings: One of my favorite things about this recipe is how you can customize it with toppings at the end from tortilla chips to cheddar cheese, jalapeno slices, avocados and everything in between!
